Naiad for HDH #52

I say it all the time, but the following card was so not what I was going to do for the latest Macabre Monday challenge! But, it does fit…so I will submit it…and if I have time, I will create a more sinister project. Truth be told, I have been kind of “unplugged” for most of the week. I pop in every once in a while to some places for a moment, but I have been spending loads of fabulous quality time with my family. We have been quite busy lately doing loads of awesome things. And I may not have time tomorrow… But enough of me rambling…

I created this card using 3 stamps from The Smeared Ink Nymphs set. This is the Naiad Nymph…a water nymph.

Naiad-1

I just love the swirls around her. She was so much fun to color in and embellish!

Naiad21

I used some Stickles and teeny pearls to add some umph to what I had already done with colored pencils.

Naiad-3

How fab is this frame? Yup! It comes in the Nymph stamp set! I embossed the frame in Verdigris embossing powder. The colors in the powder were just perfect for this card.

So I am off! Unplugging again. Hopefully I can bang something out tomorrow, but if not, you will see some more from me in a couple of days.

PS: Did you see it??? Did you see my interview at Artful INKables??? Go see, go see!!!
