Freshly Made Sketches #228

Hi, friends ... yes, I'm back again!  Sorry [not sorry =]

I had to come back to play cards with Linda at Freshly Made Sketches 298... oh I saw the challenge, and jumped in head first!
Wanna take the swim with me?  That's too funny, as I cannot swim a stroke!  Here's my way of swimming ...

E.H. Mermaid Tail, and sentiment, by Julie Ebersole;
a few distress oxide inks on silver embossing;
SSS waves white embossed onto linen vellum
 
Now for some news ... I won two tickets to see The Live Tour of Dancing with the Stars!!!!!!!  I'm taking my best dance partner!

Gosh, your mermaid tail is rather glamourous, Michele ... fabulous with the white crested waves ... and so fun with the cute sentiment! Congratulations on winning the tickets ... don't know what the show is you'll be seeing, but from the picture it looks as though it's going to be spectacular (you'll fit right in)! Hugs, Anita :)

I love this! So fun with the waves down the middle. I just ordered that stamp & die about an hour ago. I also am swimming challenged & debated whether I should buy this set. So glad it's on the way. Congrats on your DWTS tickets - have fun.

Congrats on your DWTS tickets win!! How exciting! I'd buy some if David Ross were in the troupe..... That EH mermaid set is amazing!!!! I'll be making several for the bigger girls in the family with summer birthdays, and who knows, I just might have to CASE this one!! It's truly fabulous. Love the yellow tail fading to green fading to blue. And the waves you've created...brilliant. Great card! Bev

This is such a fabulous take on the sketch! Your mermaid tail is perfect, especially how you placed it coming out of the water...so clever! Beautifully inked, and your puny sentiment is so fun! You sure know how to make me smile :)

Jeanne said...

Look at that gorgeous mermaid's tail. So shimmery and beautiful. I adore the soft white waves cresting around it, too. This is the best kind of swimming. I'm a little surprised to learn you don't swim, but not terribly. My mom didn't swim either and we had an inground pool in our backyard. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creativity! Hugs!

Jeanne said...

Completely forgot to say happy congrats on the win of those tickets. I'm sure that show will be so fun! Those dancers are very talented. Hope you'll share a bit of your experience. I was late to the DWTS party, but do enjoy watching it when it is on. :)

When I saw the peeks before their reveal, I thought of you--knew you should have this stamp! Absolutely adore this awesome card--gorgeous! Big congrats on your win. Enjoy!!

Fabulous use of that tail!! I'm still on the waitlist for the set - and your card will definitely be in my inspiration files for when I'm finally able to get it. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
