The Mermaid Pearl

This Saturday has been a very good Saturday. OSU beat Mizzou and OU will probably beat Texas Tech tonight. These are Oklahoma football teams, by the way, just incase you didn't know that. LOL! I also finished a project. I have had this image colored for several weeks now, and I decided it was time to do something with it.

This image, “The Mermaid Pearl,” and was created by Tracey Malnofski, Owner/Artist of The Stamping Boutique. My card lacks for embellishments, except for the pearls, and Spica pens. I wanted Pearl to pop. I hope I achieved that.

I colored her with my beautiful Copic markers and the pearls are from my stash. The CS (Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, and White) I used is from Stampin’ Up! I have had this digital paper printed out for several months and it was in my scrap box. It fit perfectly. The paper is from Gina K. Design’s and is part of the collection “Spring Time in Paris.”

I am entering Pearl in these challenges:
Ellephantastic Challenges – Three embellishments, Purple, Green, One image
Wee Memories – Free for all
Inspire Me Fridays – Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts – Layer upon Layer

I am so happy that you dropped by. If you have any questions, please contact me. Have a wonderful Sunday! I hope to see you again!

It's beautiful! I remember when I was in 7th grade, my geography teacher looked just like the OSU cowboy! (I was living in okc then...)
