Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Embrace The Ocean

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and Challenge blog. This week we are inspiring you with all things Mermaids and Ocean. I chose to use the gorgeous Embrace The Ocean for my card this week and kept to traditional sea colours of blue and green.

Mermaids, along with fairies, are my favourite images to work with. I think I just love all things fantasy to be honest, and I find they make really easy cards too.

And here she is...lots of seashells on this one as I finally remembered to buy some from eBay!
