SSD Freebie Friday - Mermaid Mandy

Good morning, and happy Friday!  Oh my gosh, I'm SO happy it's Friday.  It has been such a long week...but a good one!  I had two ultra sounds this week, but Bean is doing just wonderful.  He's the right size, all the pieces are there, heart's normal...I'm so relieved.  =D  How is YOUR week going?

Well, it's Friday, so you know what that means...time for another Fabulous Freebie Friday over at the Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet group! Woot woot!  Ready to meet today's freebie?

Here's Mermaid Mandy!

Isn't she adorable?? She was colored with Copics, then Glossy Accents were added to her eyes and Stickles were added to her tail and hair.  The fish dp is from my stash, and the blue background is actually white paper that I colored with Momento chalk ink.  The seaweed frame stamp I got at a used stamp sale ages ago, sorry I don't know who made it.  I stamped in versacolor in sage green, then embossed with Bridal  embossing powder.  Turned out more white than green...but I guess you learn something new every day. =D Embellishments are from Jolee's Boutique.  Sorry the picture is kind of dark, but I really wanted to show off all the sparkle.  It kind of reminds me of being in the ocean, a little dark, but lots of sparkle from the sunlight coming through the water. =D

Remember, we are in the middle of our fortnightly challenge over at Paper Craft Planet.  The theme is still Slippery When Wet, and you still have a week left to play along.  Why don't you head on over to the group to see the rest of the DT's projects, grab today's freebie, and join in the challenge? 

Remember the freebie's only available for 24 hours, so hurry on over!  Just look for the discussion with today's date. Not a member of Paper Craft Planet yet?  It's easy and free to join.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you over there!

Don't forget!  We're having an image release at the Sassy Studio Design blog this Saturday with a blog hop and lots of prizes!  Plus, there will be a chat Saturday Night at the Party Blog at 10 pm EST (that's 7 pm Pacific).  There might even be a prize for the just never know! Stop by to play along, and good luck!
