Fantastic Designer Friday with Yvonne Melendez

Hello to all of our Blog Buddies! 
This is Yvonne (aka ScrapBliss) and I have a little project 
I want to share with you today.  

Here is my card... the first is with indoor lighting and the second is outdoor:


For this project I used my Magnolia mermaid stamp, 
Watercolor paper, paintbrushes, 
and Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in Nantucket Pearls.

All of the Nantucket Pearls have a soft, barely-there pearlized shimmer.
The collection is comprised of 5 colors:
Whale Watch Blue
Cape Cod Coral
Clam Bake Biege
Sea Grass Green
Salt Water Taffy

For this project I used all but the Salt Water Taffy.
Cape Cod Coral for her hair & blush.
Clam Bake Biege for her *skin.
Whale Watch Blue for the scales.
Sea Grass Green for the sea.

* I wanted less pearlizing on her skin, so I didn't shake the bottle before using.  I let the 
pearl powder sit at the bottom and just used it for color.

On a recent trip to Virginia Beach I purchased a starfish and thought it would give this
card the perfect finishing touch.  But it looked a bit dull...

...and definitely need a little extra magic...

Lindy's Magic Moon Pearls was just what it needed!

Wow! Much better, don't you think? LOL!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you'll be back soon!
Big Shimmery Hugs & Sparkly Kisses,




  1. Beautiful card, you did a great job!

  2. This is so beautiful; your colouring/painting of the image is perfection. Love the colours, design and embellishments - so, pretty much everything really!
