A Mermaid's Summer Tag 2013

Its summer time, and I don't know about you, but I am enjoying mine very much so far. Summer is all about fun, beach, water, and hot weather.
Hello everyone!
I know I've been gone for a few weeks, but I've been on vacation, and I've just got back. I've been enjoying my summer so far, and I wanted to share with you a summery tag I created using Mermaid Sophie, from Sweet Nothings Stamp Co.  She looks too cute sitting by the water, I could not wait to color her.
Like always, I colored her using my Copic Markers and I added some distress, as well as regular Stickles to her tail, for a little bit more dimension, and shine. I used some felt clouds from Katscrappiness.com as well as some die cuts I made using a grass Impression Obsession die.
I totally got out all my fiber, and added quite a bit of it to the top of the tag, because I always like adding fibers to my tags.
The background, I embossed using a Cuttlebug folder, and I used paper by Echo Park, from last year's Summer Collection in the background of the tag. A touch of a few real mini shells finished off the tag, and I really like how it turned out. Do you? The banner I cut freehand and added a sentiment from one of those dollar stamps from Michael's or Joann's---Inkadinkado I believe is the brand.
I hope you enjoyed this project, and give Mermaid Sophie a try. She's really fun to color with her long hair.
Hope you enjoy your summer!
