Something Old, Something New...

Something Borrowed, Something Blue. NO! I am NOT getting married again! Once is plenty! I waited for the right one and John is stuck with me!

Actually, that is the challenge given to us by Coby this week on the Stampotique Designers Challenge. This is challenge 196.


For my "Old", I used some old dictionary paper. My "New" is the newest stamp I own. It's from the 2 lbs of rubber that we got when we were in Las Vegas last month at Viva Las Vegas Stamps. My "Borrowed" is a few washers I borrowed from John's extensive "collection" (you KNOW we have to have multiples of every size known to man!) in the garage! And my "Blue" is the background. I used Tim Holtz's new Mermaid Lagoon for the background. So beautiful! I used some Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel on the blue parts. I love the shimmer it gives! The mermaid was colored using Twinkling H2O's and Silks. I also used a few blue Dew Drops to simulate bubbles rising to the surface.

This is lovely! It feels very fluid and underwater. And that bit about the washers..., ain't that the truth!
