DL.ART Thankful Thursdays Challenge #178 ~ Water

Hello Blogging Buddies,

**Please note that this is one of two posts I have for today.  To see the Craft Rocket Challenge #13 ~ Favorite Color Combination post please go here.**

Today is the start of another challenge over at the DL.ART Thankful Thursdays Challenge #178 with a theme of Water (rain, faucets, tubs, etc.) or you can always substitute a Thank You card for any of the challenges.  


Newton's Nook  Designs Tranquil Tides dies
Newton's Nook Designs Tranquil Tides stamps
Tim Holtz Stencil Flourish
Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss
Distress Inks:  Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Cracked  Pistachio and Faded Jeans
Copic markers

I started by wetting my Prima Julie Nutting Mixed Media Tag and then I put distress ink on my tag and mixed it together with a water paint brush and then I let it dry.  Next I stamped my Prima Julie Nutting Sea Sallie Mermaid stamp with black ink onto white neenah paper and then I colored her with my Copic markers.  Then I placed my Tim Holtz Stencil Flourish over the Mermaids tale and I applied the Texture Paste and let that dry.  When she was dry I placed her on the tag.  Then I stamped the Newton's Nook Design Tranquil Tides stamps with distress ink and then colored them with my Copic markers, and then I cut them out with the matching Newton's Nook Design Tranquil Tides dies, and then I glued them onto the tag. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with black ink.  Then I took some DL.ART Mermaids Tale Bundle 3rd Edition Orange Green Hue ribbon and made a bow on the top of the tag.  I love the way the ribbon compliments the seahorse and sea star!
