Sweet Purple Mermaid

Hallo,


Well I am on week 2 of a bit of vacation time I took from work and really haven't done a whole lot - had planned to get yard work done and excersise (as well as stamp). But all I have gotten done is stamp :). I feel like one of the pouty kids from Mo's - and can almost hear my whiney voice saying - 'I don't wanna!!!!"


To be fair I have done a little studying for a test I am taking on thursday and did get some house work done today.....I plan to get more ambitious tomorrow.....


But for today - I have this sweet image from Sweet Pea Stamps to show you. They are having a contest for your best card over at the Sweet Pea DT blog - check it out here - http://www.sweetpearubberstamps.blogspot.com/

I stamped her in memento black and then colored her with copics. I added highlights with purple and gold spica glitter pens.

I cut her and the next 2 layers with Spellbinders dies and edged her main panel with gold mettalic pen.

I used a texture folder on the base cardstock and highlighted the texture with teal ink, and then added some pearls to finish her off.

I will also link her to the 'In A Sweet Pea Dream' blog for this months challenge for 'anything goes'. Check it out here - http://www.inasweetpeadreamchallengeblog.blogspot.com/

All for today - going to do a little baking this afternoon.....
Take Care
Tera
