It’s Thursday! You know what that means! It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge with the Groovy Gurlz! And, since it’s the first Thursday in August, we have a new Guest Gurl! Welcome Jane to the bunch!!!
This week’s project is to use some flowers and swirls on your projects this week! The more the better! So this is what I came up with.
So yeah…I didn’t go too far into the realm of flowers…and maybe not too far into the swirl category either…but I do think I did just the right amount for this card. I really wanted to use the lovely pearl mermaid so I colored her in (I always do my coloring first), and then tried to find papers to go with her.
I thought it was a total score when I found the green cardstock (DCWV). I just loved the Celtic like swirls…and they reminded me of fins! Then I came across the purple floral (K & Co.), and thought it was just enough flowers…and the perfect shade of purple!
Here’s a close up of the beautiful mermaid. What do you thin of her pearl? I tried to make it a black Tahitian pearl…’cause those are just gor-jusssss!!!! Click on any of the pics for a close up!
Do you see the glitter on the green cardstock? It added just the right amount of shimmer. So, even though I didn’t add a lot of details, I think that the mermaid speaks for herself. Oh! And I must give credit where credit is due…My husband helped me with my colors this week! Thanks, Babe! I have this thing about making mermaids green and giving them orange hair…and I have a hard time breaking away from that…so I enlisted is advice, and he made some great choices!
Now scoot along (after telling me what you think about my lil card here!) and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Have an inspiring day!!!
