Not long now...

Sorry i'm so late posting today.. boy it's been a hectic one. I'm back again to show my last Hanna stamps sneak peak before the release at 11pm EST. For my international visitors there is a party tonight at SCS 9pm EST. Pop on over and read this post for more details.

I made a bookmark today using one of the stamps from the Hanna Mermaid set. This set is busting with lots of accessories as well as the main character Hanna Mermaid which I showed you yesterday. I stamped my seahorse and then stamped him again on a post-it note. I cut around my seahorse using a round nestabilities and then masked him to copic airbrush the background. My seahorse is then coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. Again lots more shimmer with sakura stardust and stickles. The cardstock I used is also glittery.


My daughter Zoe is a right little bookworm so she was pleased I had made this for her. I think my Seahorse would fit in well to the Harry Potter stories as with his black cape he looks like a wizard.

If you been hoping round the Hanna stamps teams blogs over the last few days i'm sure you'll agree they have had some awesome sneaks. If you haven't had a chance yet you will find the links to their blogs on Friday's post or in my sidebar. You can also check out all the teams cards here on SCS.

I've had quite a few emails today from friends. Please don't think i'm ignoring you and I will write back tomorrow ;-)

Hugs,
