Mermaid


I adore Mermaids, I think any card with a mermaid on turns out to be a favourite.

I made this card yesterday,ready to blog for the weekend. It was boiling hot (again) and I have made so many Christmas cards lately - I needed a change, so fans blowing some cool(ish) air I set to work.
I used the absolutly stunning Mermaid digi

That you can find in the Etsy store here.
She is also available on the Bonbon Belles Collection
Bonbon Belles Double CD Collection
All the emblies (apart from the seaweed - which was a leaf punch) came from there , also the sweet Sentiment.
The wave paper , which fitted perfectly is from

I coloured with Graph'It Markers
Skin 4115, 4155, 4170, 3210
Hair 3290, 3280, 3250, 3245, 3210, 4110
Blue 7155, 7150, 7145, 7140
and also used Glamour Dust to make her sparkle and Glossy accents for bubbles
I love the 3'd effect although quite difficult to take a photo off.

Happy Anniversary

What no Graph'It Markers?
Nope diddly no 
Although they kept wanting to jump into my hands and were screaming at me to use them and colour
I ignored temptation!
A 55th Wedding anniversary is something very special and I wanted to put a lot of love into making my card.
It is for my Sister and her Husband, Sadly we havent seen each other for many years but we are  in phone contact.
The lovely DP I used is Save the Date by Teresa Collins
The Tag, Birdcage, birds and Butterflies were cut on my portrait. The flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink and finished off with some White Liquid Pearls
