I recently purchased the Message in a Bottle stamp set. I wanted to make a birthday card and thought what I really wanted was a genie to grant wishes! So, I masked off the bottom of the mermaid and made her into a genie!

Design  Notes for Message in a Bottle Card

Well, I stamped the bottle then stamped another bottle to use as a mask. But it didn’t turn out the way I had hoped. It looked like a mermaid behind a bottle. Not what I wanted. Take 2.

Did you notice the little drops of water around and in the bottle? I used some of the new Glimmer and Clear Epoxy Shapes. Aren’t they perfect?
