SDC:270 - Text Background

The current theme at

This is one of those projects where you are immediately inspired by an image
and are thankful when it all pans out in the end.  

The new Merman stamp called, 'Snuhubala', by Daniel Torrente
is a perfect fit for his mermaid (one of three), 'Smumanha'.

I got lots of dimension by using various layers of doilies and die cuts.
And then used lots of foam dots on the happy couple for ultimate lift.

For my text background, I used an old dictionary page from a dictionary
I've had since high school. Quite vintage and nicely yellowed. I splattered some
Dylusions sprays to add some color, and added a love die cut for the sentiment.

I am quite happy with how this project worked out.
It's nice when something happens organically and as close to perfect as possible.

Thanks for dropping by my lonely little blog....
