Nautical Challenge - Simon Says Stamps

Come join the Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  It is super easy to join in.  This weeks challenge is to follow a nautical theme relating to sailors, ships, or navigation.  Cruise along with Simon Says Stamps and join them on an adventurous voyage.  Keep in mind the many possibilities: a cruise ship vacation, boating on the lake, or sailing across one of the seven seas.  Those are just a few ideas to get you thinking.  Here is my card: Mesmerizing Mermaid of the Deep.  Also, I am joining the Artistic Stamper Creative Challenge "Anything Goes."  To join in all you have to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure to include some rubber stamping.

I had never tried heat embossing onto silver twinkle mirror card. I love all the shimmer and there was none of the mess and headache caused from the mess of regular loose glitter. Then I took my circle punches to create all the various bubbles.  The watery background was created with alcohol inks which were perfect for creating more bubbly texture.  I am so very pleased with it.

What an absolutely lovely and unique card! This reflects every good thing about the sea in such an original format. I really love the addition of the circles and how you've created a scene with such great texture. Thank you so much for sharing such an inspiring piece with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
