Let's Be Mermaids



It's time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS. This time the code word is TEAL. My mind immediately went to mermaid. I love this mermaid's tail image so much and so I pulled it out, embossed it in silver, watercolored it with teal ink and popped it up on the scalloped rectangle. I love the silver and teal together, and the way the ink is heavier in some spots than others giving illusion of  movvement. I stamped the spatters with the teal ink and added the sentiment.

The ATCAS DT has created some wonderful inspiration pieces to get your creative juices flowing. Our Guest Designer is the wonderful and talented Gerrina of Gerrina's Creatieve Wereld. Gerrina's work is so unique and imaginative... go for a stroll through her blog. You will be so glad you did.

Teal is the perfect color for the mermaid, Stephanie, and those splatters look like she's tossing her tail at us. Love it!
