Sister Stamps Release #14 - Aurora
I don't know about you, but every year I buy those tear away calendars around July with the good intention of making gifts for the holidays. And every year, I usually don't make anything or I don't use up my entire stash of calendars. And because they're timely and expire, they go to waste. One day I found my "once again not used" calendars and came up with an idea for a card. I tore off the June sheet and decided to make a personalized card for a friend. I highlighted her birthday by stamping around the 11 with a heart stamp. I backed the calendar with white cardstock to give it some sturdiness since the tear away sheet is pretty thin. Then I taped some Baker's Twine to the back and put a brad through the blue cardstock to make it look like it's hanging. If you don't have these calendars, you could use any digital or sticker type calendar.
The first mermaid I'm featuring is Aurora! I loved coloring her up because anything goes when it comes to colors (like green hair) with these mermaids. I used Amy Young's coloring technique for her tail and you, too can learn how here.
