Out in the sun they slave away...while we devotin' full time to floatin' under the sea...

Good morning, people!! Welcome to the Amber Ink. Grand Opening Blog Frolic! Today the Amber Ink. store officially opens its doors, and you are invited to hang out with us! We've also invited some special friends to participate, in addition to our Brilliant th(Ink)Tank Girls, so get ready to drool!

I decided to use my favorites of this release so far...Can I Keep Him?!! and the Pink Ombre Tiny Dolphin Paisley iPaper. LOVE them both!



I am also lovin' the description that Amber has on the site:
'Can I Keep Him' fills two of the deepest voids I have ever had.
1) to be a mermaid.
2) to rescue and keep EVERY SINGLE animal who has ever had need of a home.


 I can totally relate! Especially with the animal part. *wink*

My starting off point for this card was a sketch by Kim Teasdale for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges over on Splitcoast. I colored the image with Copics, added some Glossy Accents to the mermaid and the seal, Diamond Stickles to her hair, then spritzed with Caribbean Blue Glimmer Mist so it looked like she was under water. I spritzed the Soft Sky base layer as well.

So....not only do we have eye candy for you, but we're giving away some secret hidden prizes along the way. You won't know where they are hiding, so make sure to leave some love wherever you go. Winners will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog posts.

Without further ado, here's the list of genius...go forth and comment!
