I have to admit to squealing just a little bit when I saw this gorgeous stamp set, HEATWAVE, and knew instantly what I wanted to create with the main image. 

I decided that she looked a little like a mermaid and after stamping her out with my RAVEN HYBRID INK PAD I coloured her as such with my Copics.  I also gave her a ‘tail’ by stamping the ice cream cone and adding two of the feathers to the top.

The background was made with the awesome SUNBURST RECTANGLE die but I used it as a stencil, pushing gilding wax through for my shining rising sun. 

The sea is from the stunning YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE 6X6 PAPER PACK and I added the whale tail, splashes and birds from the SHORE LUCKY stamp set. I wanted a bit more dimension so I also added the waves from the fabulous SURFING WAVE & SANDY BEACH SET 

I cut one of the sentiments from HEATWAVE and VERY roughly cut it into a cloud shape then die cut another more professional looking one from the SUN & CLOUDS DIE SET.

 Hop along and leave a comment so you could win! 

And make sure to be back tomorrow for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!

See ya!
