You will receive one of these "Mermaid in a Bottle" Artist Trading Card kits with every order throughout the month of July 2015.  Each kit will come with ONE of the mermaids; either the red mermaid beauty on the left or the light yellow mermaid beauty on the right; not both.

The photo above shows the 2 different mermaid beauties that I have created for this month's kit.  The one on the left has a beach beauty in a red bathing suit, a yellow coral reel crown for her head and an orange colored coral reef.  The one on the right has a light yellow bathing suit, a blue coral reef crown for her head, and a blue colored coral reef.  You will receive either the mermaid beauty on the left or the one on the right; not both.  These images were created to be cut out by you and then layered and glued to the inside of the glass bottle image; hence the "Mermaid in a Bottle"!

3 - flat backed white iridescent pearls.  You can glue these inside of the bottle to use them as air bubbles or glue them inside the shells before they are glued to the ATC.
Lastly, an ATC clear sleeve. (The plastic confetti pieces will be inside of the sleeve).

May 2015 Artist Trading Card kit of the Month - "Lady in the Window"

May ATC kit of the Month
"Lady in the Window" a peacock/peacock colored themed ATC kit

Get your scissors ready!  This is a 3D layered decoupage kit with a beautiful vellum window that I created just for this kit.  If you've never tried layered paper tole/decoupage before, then this kit is for you.  Just follow the directions included in this kit to create your ATC.  Pop on over to the store and make a purchase!  This ATC kit will be included in your order free this month.


Here is what is included in this kit:

There is an instruction sheet included in this kit with directions on how to create your 3D layered paper tole/decoupage images ie. the white roses and the peacock.  

1 - 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. white ATC card
1 - A beautiful window that has been printed on vellum paper.  I created this window to match the blue colors of a peacock.  When it is glued to the white ATC, the colors are brilliant.

I have also included a clear ATC sleeve, but with the way I have designed this ATC, the peacock will hang over the edges of your ATC making it impossible to fit into the sleeve.  Keep it to store the little extra embellishments that you didn't use.
