June Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday: Mermaid Anchor

Greetings! It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's time for me to share the newest Muse Monday for Bombshell Stamps with you. Are you familiar with Muse Monday? Each month, I choose a set of Bombshell Stamps that I want the fabulous Design Team to work with. Each Monday, at least 2 team members will share projects with you using that featured set. Plus, that set will be on sale for the entire month! For June, I wanted to work with Mermaid Anchor. It's a fairly new set for me in my collection, but since I have gotten it...I have used it quite a number of times. I am really enjoying working with it.

I made a mini page (6x6 layout). I am quickly falling in love with making these babies. I colored my images with my Green, Pale Hues and Cool Gray sets from Spectrum Noir.

I was in a green mood today.....wasn't planning on doing a monochromatic page...but it worked out that way. Seems like I am working with unusual colors (or the lack there of) lately.

I used some of the icons and one of the dolphins on my background paper. I clear embossed them for a watermarked effect. I hope you enjoyed my page! Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog every Monday for more rad projects featuring Mermaid Anchor. And don't forget to buy your own set this month, while it's on sale! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Gorgeous page, Alison! I am loving that color! I really dig that shade of green. That little dolphin is the perfect touch, too! 6X6 does seem so much more manageable. Thanks for the inspiration.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
