Little Mermaid

Just a quick post before I go and watch the Grand National with my little Brother. It's been such a great day, been shopping with my Sister in town and had our lunch together and before I went I managed to finish this card what I have been making over the last week.... bit by bit!!!

It's a "Tent" card which I learnt to make at a Molly Bloom class at the Craft Box a couple of weeks ago.

I must also apologise for the quality of the first picture but I was in a rush, hopefully the others are better.

I got my stamps out to see how many I had that would make a scene and this little Mermaid, seahorse and shell set from Magnolia were just what I was looking for. Well, it was when my Mum bought the shells for me last week to make the set up, ha ha!

I have used the Bubble Magnolia paper and I coloured the image with my new Aqua promarkers, hopefully getting better with the colouring but I love the look they give. Lots of Glossy and the new Lagoon Stickles which I just love.

I finished with some lovely blue ribbon which was only £1 for a whole role from the Craft Box - bargain!

Hope you like my card. Have a fab weekend, lets hope the weather stays nice before work on Monday!!!

  7. I've been on a few blogs this morning and all i've done is appologise for not being anywhere near blogland for so long, but i'm looking through older posts of each one to make up for it, and the one thing i've noticed with all blogs i've look at is you're all doing some incredible artwork. Take care Happy Easter. lotsalove xoxo Ann
