I treasure our friendship...

Good morning!

Today's lovely mermaid comes from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and she is part of the Sea Jewels set that unfortunately is now discontinued. I altered her just a bit by wiping the crown off her head. The little seahorses came from the Fin-tastic Friends set but I think they like their new home with Sea Jewel. I did a bit of watercolor "smooshing" for the background using three different Distress Inks, every time I do this fun technique I end up telling myself that I really need to do it more often, LOL! I added sequins for 'bubbles' and even though you can't see it in the photo there is a bunch of Wink of Stella glitter on her tail so that I can enter this card into the current Saturday challenge, "Glitter & Sequins".  :)

Have a great week everybody!
