Mermaid 03

Sometimes, I watercolor a few quarter sheets of watercolor paper (it’s kinda therapeutic to slop watercolors around randomly with no end in mind) and just stash ‘em for a rainy day (or when the mojo goes AWOL). This one made a perfect ocean-like background to just stamp the tail over in a mid-tone green. *fist pump* White emboss a greeting on a scrap strip of vellum and wrap it around.  Add some Clear NUVO drops.

BOOM!

Before I knew what was happening, this card came together in 5. *fist pump* And a sentiment that makes me and m’ fellow mermaids chuckle? WIN!!! Every.Single.Time. ;)
