You're a gem...

Hi ya!

Today I'm playing along in the current 'anything goes' Sugar Bowl challenge and I have inked up the lovely Ocean's Gift stamp to do so. I have the rubber version of this image which is no longer available but the digi version can be found right here. She's definitely a bit edgier looking than most of my other mermaid stamps, what with that funky hair-do she's sportin'. So I wanted to show her softer side, thus the cool color palette of light blues, greens and purples. The papers are an old favorite of mine from the long defunct Scrapbook Wizard company. In fact I have this same bubble print in several other color ways and I am tempted to make more mermaid cards using them as well. :)

Alrighty, time for me to scoot my boot. 
Talk at'cha later!
