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.
