Ribbons & Pearls

Ribbons & Pearls!
What a fun new challenge from Craftitude this week.
I really enjoyed this weeks challenge!
We are being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.

I made this card that I am going to use as a picture frame.
I thought this would be perfect for my children's picture with Disney's Ariel.

I used Sassy Studio's Syrena mermaid stamp.
Isn't she just lovely?
For my ocean I used some fine lace and a blue stamp pad to color it.
I love this technique!
I added some gorgeous blue fibers with a hint of gold.
I got these for Christmas and absolutely love them!!
I added some medium and small pearls to the top of the water.
For my rock that Syrena is sitting on, I cut out a piece of gold glitter ribbon.
I also added a little piece of ribbon to the top for an added touch.
Please join us at Craftitude this week for this wonderful challenge!

  12. Beautiful!! I love all those ribbons and pearls; it gives the piece more dimension but it really does look like waves bubbling up to the shore. Your coloring is fabulous. I've bookmarked your sponsor's page as those Sassy images are fantastic. Thanks for showing this off over at Red Carpet Studios!
