Make a splash...

Hello again!

As promised yesterday, I played around and did the Bean alteration idea that was on my mind. Instead of using Shimmer Bean again I inked up Shiny Bean for the first time and have transformed her into... Sea Bean! Is darling as the Beans are as fairies, I really wanted to see one test the waters with a shimmery tail. It was as easy as wiping away her legs and wings before stamping and then printing out a scaled down Mer Ian digi so that I could swap out his tail and glue it onto my Shiny Sea Bean. I really had a blast putting her together and she needed a special card to call home.
The Farm Fresh Friday challenge is a 1-2-3 recipe to use 1 image, 2 embellishments, and 3 patterned papers. So I dug into my scraps until I found a fun mix to set the scene and used twine and my go-to gems for the two types of embellishments. I think Shiny Sea Bean with her ombre hair is having a wonderful time swimming with all those fishy friends. :)

Okey dokey, time for me to scoot my boot.
Later gators!
