Giddyup, Mermaid

Yeah...those two don't necessarily go together do they?  I whipped up a couple of goodies for some challenges this morning.  The first card is for the CASual Fridays Splish Splash challenge - something oceany - and the MFT Sketch Challenge.

 The stamps I used are from My Favorite Things Who's That Mermaid and Studio G (the little bubbly border).  I added little bits of glitter to the bubbles to make them...bubblier.

 The mermaid's tail is covered with Diamond Glaze to make her shiny, too.

The next little gem is for Waltzingmouse's Birthday challenge.  I love their stamps - great quality.  I'm going to tuck this away for emergency gift packaging.  ;)

 Can you see in the pictures that the horseshoes were stamped with silver ink?  The barbed wire is made using a mini embossing folder and going over it with some distress ink. I also tried to make the Yee Haw look like a piece of wood by cutting it kind of jaggedy and distressing it a bit.

That's it for today.  Happy trails.
