MY Little Mermaid... and the rest of us...

I LOVE this stamp set from Bombshell Stamps. AND I will always color mermaids with red hair because of a certain popular mermaid that my daughter adores... so it is her request that all mermaids have red hair. Anyway... This was a super fun card that I made a while ago and I thought I had showed it... but ALAS... I did not... so here she is.
I used copics for coloring and stickles for her tail... AND for some fun underwater shimmer, I embossed some glittery seaweed for the goldfish to frolic in.
As for My Darling Little Ava Mermaid... She is excited. Why you ask? VACATION... and there will not only be a resort with 3 pools... but the entire gulf of Mexico for her to dunk her dainty toes in... Oh yeah... the rest of us are going too. I think my son has a little bit of Mer-boy in him,too. Well... thanks for looking...and have a great day!

Pretty in Purple... featuring Rachel Anderson

I LOVE Rachel Anderson's stamps. LOVE them... like I LOVE ice cream and that is saying something! For my card, I used this image From Rachel Anderson's sheet 2 plate 111. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with black Stazon ink.Then I used ink from the top of my ink pads and a water brush to water color her.I embossed the paper she is mounted on and sponged it with a darker purple for contrast. And as far as the shadowbox effect that my image is in? Simple... i used my dies to cut out my finished image. Then i used the next larger size die to cut the red paper and used a smaller die to create a frame I used dimensional tape to life the frame for the shadow box look. EASY... and a really nice look. I had the ribbon in my humongous ribbon stash and I thought it matched pretty good! thanks for stopping in and don't forget to have a look at the Sweet Pea Stamps page for some great deals on some amazing stamps!

Who Knew Art Impressions Had THESE Stamps?

I sorta stumbled across this category of stamps over at the Art Impressions webstore. They are called Stamp Puns and they are sooo funny! I used on for the color challenge over at the AI blog and Just creating this card tickled me! I mean... how adorable is this image! I enjoy sending cards to make people smile and when you check out the stamps in this category, I am sure you will need to add some to your collection!

I water colored this little lady and embossed the background and then sponged it to show off the texture. The flowers were a perfect match... so they went on there too! Our challenge this week at the AI blog is a color combo... blue black and tan! Please join us and you could win a $25  gift certificate to the AI store! thanks for stopping in!
