Thinking of you...


Today I am playing along in the current challenge over at A Day for Daisies, which is to CASE one of the DT member's cards. I chose to pull inspiration from this lovely card created by Broni. Not only did her card get me to create another 'smooshed' watercolor background but I also found myself adding sequins and a white sentiment against the watercolor. All of this creates a lovely background for this Mermaid in a Jar digi that I have just been dying to color up. Being quite familiar with the idea of fairies trapped in a jar this was the first stamp I'd seen that had a tiny mermaid caught in the same situation and I love it. Though I'm sure it is only a temporary situation for her... perhaps she is being relocated to a new pond or lagoon.  ;)

Well, thanks for stopping by today. I catch ya' again tomorrow!  :)

I LOVE your smooshed background, the sequins and white sentiment and especially your adorable "trapped" mermaid. I'm quite sure she's being relocated! Thanks for joining us at A Day For Daisies and thanks for CASEing my card!!
