It's been a crazy week at the Bailey house. Work has been crazy, my boss (which I liked) was fired, my daughter is out of town and I miss her, my other daughter just lost two heart breaking basketball games in a row and I spent the week installing over 800 pieces of art for our Youth Art Month exhibition at the museum where I work. It's my favorite show all year. Young artists from K-12th grade show their best art work and it is AMAZING! what these kids can do! So inspiring!
I hope all is well with everyone in blog land.
Today is our Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky with K. Andrew. I hope you will create a project and play along. There will be prize for a lucky person randomly chosen that links up their project on the Getting Cricky blog.
Today's challenge is "Argh Matey" - anything with a pirate or fishy theme. Here is my project.
I stamped the mermaid on several pattern papers and then again on flesh colored cardstock, then I cut out the parts and pieced them together on the flesh cardstock. I used the Liquid Pearls by Ranger, obviously appropriate! :) for the pearl earrings and necklace and a little bit of antique brass Stickles by Tim Holt in her hair but it did not photograph well. I also used a Peachy Keen face for her. The mermaid stamp doesn't have a face on it, that way you can either choose the stamped face that comes in the set or use or draw another. I adore PK stamps and was so excited they work with Kristals stamps. What a team!!!
Here are the K. Andrew Stamps that I used. You can click on the preview image and head right to her store to purchase your very own. Every purchase benefits a charity.
I hope you have enjoyed the challenge project and that you will choose to create one of your own to link up. Go HERE to do so!
