Message in a Bottle – Friends

Message in a bottle - Stampin' Up! - by Carolyn Bennie Australian Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator carolynbennie.com

So when I think ‘Message in a bottle’ I’m thinking about that amazing ‘Police’ song from the late 70’s… anyone with me?  “Sending out an SOS, I’m sending out an SOS………”

SOOO many hours in my bedroom as a kid rocking out to the Police. Awesome band. ……..Anyways, back to stamping. 😉

The ‘Message in a Bottle’ stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is a ‘corker’ … teehee. There is actually a cork in the set! I’m using the cutie-pie mermaids from the set today to play with the Addicted to CAS code word FRIEND.

When I thought about colouring these mermaids I HAD to make them Jane, Carolyn and Jo’s! I’ve been friends with these beautiful women for 30 years – I’m crazy lucky to have them in my life.

How to make this card:

  1. I’ve stamped my mermaid friends stamp in Sahara Sand ink – so I could do no-line colouring,
  2. I’ve coloured in the ladies with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils.
  3. With my Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencil, I’ve lightly outlined the edge of the Shimmery White Cardstock then blended it out with a Sponge Dauber to get a soft effect.
  4. Stamping the FRIENDS sentiment from the set in Rich Razzleberry.
