Make waves...


I'm excited to be using a new to me stamp company on my card today. I spotted this little mermaid being sneak peeked on Instagram last week and I just had to have her. So I placed my first order with The Rabbit Hole Designs and inked her up as soon as I ripped open my package, LOL! Because I've also been itching to ink up this Sea Air Flora stamp set that I got at the end of last summer from Papertrey Ink I decided to switch gears and do an inked background rather than coloring one in with my Copics. This was seriously more nerve racking for me than diving in to color a scene! But I'm glad I took this vacation outside my comfort zone because I do think it works beautifully with the stamped coral and seaweed that I die cut and added below. In the end I have a happy CAS card with a mermaid who is just as sweet as can be... hooray for new stamps! :)
