Mertyl the Turtle...Made with a digi stamp from My Original Artwork




Hello All!
I have been busy designing some digi stamps from my original artwork that I hope to be offering for sale as soon as I get a good collection done up and figure out how to set up PayPal buttons. UUGGHH!
This is one of my first batches. Meet Mertyl the Turtle! A friend of mine suggested I do a turtle because she has one for a pet.
The papers are "Basic Grey" and "core'dinations". I really glossed up her shell but didn't quite get the second coat of embossing powder hot enough to be smooth. I think it really adds to the shell effect.
Please let me know what you think.
Remember, you can click on the image to enlarge.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great weekend! :)
