Mermaids and Sea Scenes

My jaw dropped today when Miranda sent me the link to her latest blog post. She used a selection of my Sea Themed stamps to create some stunning underwater scenes. They are a great combination of focal stamps and background textural stamps.

Love how Miranda highlighted certain segments of Sea Bubbles Set below. Seaweed Set also looks great layered along the bottom in different colors to create a sense of depth.
Love the silver embossing with Seahorse Set as well as the clear bubble accents.
 A very appropriate quote to go with Sea Bubbles, Spiral Shell and Seaweed Set
This is a stunning use of Dreaming Mermaid. I love what Miranda wrote in her post about the mermaid in the bubble. The subtle eye shadow and blush is cute too.
Miranda's first use of Raindrop Set.

The card below is by Wendy. She tells me that she had the idea of combining Rising Bubbles with Left Corner Mermaid since she first saw the new designs. I can see why. They look great the way she put them together! In this card she also used School of Fish Set and Kelp. More details on Wendy's blog HERE

Below are three tags that Eileen sent in today. The middle tag is her first use of Rising Bubbles from my new collection. The bubbles work really well highlighted with white on the top and bottom. The more the white stands out the more 3D the bubbles look. Love Eileen's color work as always. Whether it's fish or flowers the vibrancy she creates always makes me feel good.

Well that's it for now. I look forward to showing you some more examples using the new Water Effects stamps. Bye for now :)
