Mermaid and SC challenge

This summer scene is for the one layer challenge on splitcoast and uses markers and brayer tapping.  

This mermaid is just one layer for the splitcoast Friday challenge. I used brayer tapping to get the sun rays and tried doing a reflection on the lower left corner. She is colored with markers.

I can't decide if I like the sun defined by a line or left blurry.

Sweetpea mermaids

Nothing magic, nothing fishy, Just a little get well wishy

This mermaid stamp from Sweetpea was fun to play with. My colors of the day seem to be mossy green and caramel.  If you can't tell from the picture, my lady on the top is holding kleenex  -- my lady on the bottom has some dreamy waves made with crystal effects in the water. 

Steve's Housewarming

After Steve had a big fire in his Chicago house, this seemed like an appropriate card to send for his new home in Boston.


I love Wednesday sketches over at Splitcoast and did this simple thank you card.  Lazy me, I used the same torn cardstock from yesterday only with yellow and got the most beautiful blending of color you could imagine.

The kitty is a new dollar store find from Michaels; the thank you is Sweetpea.

Another colorway

Tried the same sketch as yesterday with different colors and was really pleased with the results. Oval is for personalization.

Sweet pea and splitcoast challenges

( on the left ) I did another Sweetpea stamp card with the mermaid. I just had to put those eyelets on and give her a bikini top.

( on the right) Tried out the sketch challenge on splitcoast and here is the card I came up with.
