Magical Mermaid CI#26

No automatic alt text available.

Colour INKspiration has a new colour inspiration for you every fortnight on a Wednesday at 8:00pm. Tonight is that night! The crew is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and love to create cards and the occasional 3D project.

Do fishing nets even come in those beautiful blues and greens? I'm sure I won't be the only person who continues along the maritime theme, but I couldn't go past this pair of mermaids for a young lady who lives on the coast. I actually had never inked up the Magical Mermaid till now, but I've pinned heaps to my Pinterest board!

Tranquil Tide seems a bit washed out from the photography which is a shame, as the colour is quite intense. 

I imagine that it is a mum mermaid and her little one swimming in the ocean and I'm sure Alice will too, since she is sure her mum is a queen and she is a princess. The littlest mermaid is from Magical Day, which has unicorns, wizards and knights. I think it is one of the best kids sets we have had in a while, and not totally restricted to kids either (Dungeons & Dragons, Harry Potter?)

What can you make using Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand? Don't forget to share it on our Facebook page.

Now it's time to check out what the always-amazing Rebecca has created

If you are interested you can join my team at any time that's good for you. However, I must point out that NOW is a particularly good time, because you can order $235 worth of any products on your "wish" list, and pay only $169. Shipping is free on this order, and in addition you get to choose 2 extra stamp sets free (up to a value of $174.00) so I'd be picking a couple of those large expensive sentiment sets like Better Together, Happy Celebrations, Flourishing Phrases, Special Celebrations. Call me if you would like my information, or you can read more by clicking on the tab at the top of my blog page 'Join Stampin' Up!'. Lots of answers to the commonly asked questions are there.
