CCM 119 Under The Sea

Goodness knows where my brain is these days, but it’s appears to be absent without leave. I am meant to have blogged this a week ago and I completely forgot.

CCM 119 Under The Sea Ageless B'day

So our challenge this fortnight, or should it be week, lol, is Under the Sea. Anything that lives in or under the sea is fine. I went with a Sweet Pea stamp called The Dark Mermaid. I coloured her with copics, and edged her scales with a white pigment ink pen. I also dotted it into her hair. Her wings have been coated with glamour dust as has her top.

We are sponsored by Sir Stampalot with a fabulous sheet of appropriately themed stamps and also by Di’s Digistamps with a $12 gift certificate for their store.

The background is a Sheena Douglass embossing folder called Water Ripples, which I have then inked in various pastel blues/greens. This was embossed onto a mat from the Spellies Die that is also around the outside.

I am entering her into:-
