on the ocean wave

hello dear tag friends, i hope your summer (or winter) is coming along nicely.  although i do have a summer beach vacation coming up it is still a couple months away.  so for now i can only dream...


this is a tiny tag, measuring about 1x2 inches.  i spritzed the tag base with water color inks from stamp zia (a company which sadly seems to have gone out of business) in blue topaz and emerald green.  I stamped the mermaid first, a stamp by "good stamps stamp goods) and then masked the mermaid (watch out i'm getting fancy...).  next i stamped the waves (meer image stamps) and the bubbles (G-rated stamps).  final step was adding this lovely black ribbon.

i love mermaids! happy week and love to all.

  5. Hi Michele
    This may be a tiny tag but as the saying goes "good things often come in small packages" .Love your detail in the creation of this under water scenario. What a fabulous mermaid.
