Party Time Tuesday #10.

Wow! Hard to believe its been 10 weeks of parting with the girls at Party Time Tuesdays! Today we have a summer theme for your birthday card. I grabbed from my lovely stash of CC Designs Mermaids. Gabi had challenged me to make a rainbow colored haired mermaid. Remember a few weeks back she wanted hot pink. (This card was made the same time as that one...a day or two later in fact.) I was so pleased with how it turned out, but sad that I had to keep it a secret for so long! I cut along the pattern that I thought reminded me of a wave. Than the set of papers has a sheet of tags. I put her on the tag after I cut her out.
For her hair, I went thru my copics finding colors that went with the next color in the rainbow. Drew lines on a scrap paper to see how they'd go together. I'm pleased with her hair! Than surprise for me, I had just grabbed this paper pack from The Angel Company, (TAC) and had actually colored her to go with a different set of papers, had put her down on top of the TAC papers. She looked so perfect against the colors that I had to switch papers.
I covered her tail in Smooch. Love the subtle shine on there. Dotted her a few times with my white Sharpie Poster Pen-thanks, Kim! I created this sentiment off the computer.
We'd love for you to play along. Be sure to stick that birthday sentiment on the front of your summer card! Link it back up to the Party Time Tuesday blog. Make sure you peak at the other designers too! They all have some smashing summer creations!
Kristie lined up some fun party gals for the month of Aug. This week we have Colleen from A Cards Delight. She's got a great blog, with some fantastic cards! Make sure you pop over to see what she created for the party as well!

Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: TAC paper, CC Design stamp, copics, nesties, Palette blue ink pad, stickles, smooch, primas, SU cardstock.
