Diedrich Dare #23

(If you haven't already, don't forget to enter my candy located here!)
So The Great Randi is hostessing the challenge over at the Whimsical Wednesday challenge blog this week, and is therefore to blame for this offering. It's a tribute to her work, but obviously, it's done my way (and doesn't come anywhere near the grandness of hers!).
The challenge was to use Light Olive/Avocado, Hot Pink/Raspberry, Pink/Rose and Sky Blue/Light Aqua... so I did - {pink in the pearls, seaweed & her tail; olive on her tail, in the seaweed & pearls; blue along the bottom, in the seaweed, the pearls, & the flower in her hair; and last but not least, hot pink for her hair, in the seaweed & the pearls} . And since I have no Glimmer Mist (oh, how I covet thee...) I just painted the whole freakin' front with Angel Wings Shimmerz. And that glittery blue streak on the bottom? It's this funky Elmer's Glitter Paint Art Glaze stuff that I found in the kids crafts/office section at Zellers. Fun! Oh, and of course, pearls. Always pearls with my pretty Bombshell Mermaid!


  1. Ah, Stephanie, you are making me blush!! Thanks for the really sweet words!!

    I LOVE that you made a mermaid card!!! I think your Bombshell mermaid is gorgeous!! I love all the multi colored kelp and the sprinkling of baubles to match!! Such a cute idea!! Of course I love the shimmery background too.

    Thanks for playing along with the Dare this week! You did an amazing job with this color challenge!

  2. LOVE your coloring! Love the shimmery look, too! And the colored pearls on the bottom, awesome! I gotta play with the bombshell!

  3. So nice to find another Canadian scrapper and a Prairie girl;) I noticed the Bombshell stuff on your blog and got really excited. There's not enough edgy fun stamps like these and I love them! One less "flower" stamp or "doily" punch and I think we would all survive. Looking forward to futute postings:)

    If you like take a poke around my blog...
