Pretty "Pearl" Bookmark

Tomorrow will be my last post for awhile, I'll be out of town for a few days enjoying the 4th with family! :0)  Hope you all have a great one too!

Picked up this fabulous Pearl Tidepool stamp a few weeks ago and I've had her colored up but she was just sitting there lonely on my desk.  Everyone seemed to like the distress ink background I used on my other mermaid card so I decided to try it again, this time with a book mark though.   I also did some feather blending with two colors on her tail which came out pretty good for a first try. She's so pretty!

(Gasp!) She's colored so beautifully! And what a great idea to make a bookmark with an elongated design! She's much too pretty to use...
