Hi Susan here....
There is a new challenge over at The Crazy Challenge and the theme is 'TONS OF SHAPES', for full details of the challenge and some great inspiration from the design team please call across to The Crazy Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us.
For my card I used a selection of backing papers from my stash, I wanted to have a watery feel so kept the colours to greens, browns and blue with of the course the touch of pink, well I had to didn't I!!
All the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. I hope you can seen all the different shapes I have used on this card, not just the shape of my topper and tags, there are the shells and the shapes in the backing paper and my flower. My ribbons and pearls are all from our local market.
My beautiful digi image is from Sassy Studios and she is called 'Little Honeys Little Mermaid', isn't she great, the 'All Natural Woman' haha!! The shells were from various holidays I love collecting shells and bringing them home. I have used Pro-Markers to colour my image and then I mat and layer her onto a large scalloped deep blue/green card. The edges have been distressed and glittered.
I made my own flower, it is supposed to be a replica of the one in the mermaids hair, I slightly decoupaged three of the petals, the edges have all been glittered. Pearl stamens have been used for the center.
My sentiment was made on the computer, the edges again have been distressed and glittered.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Paper Sundaes 41 - A natural woman (well a mermaid is natural and a woman!!)
Digital Tuesday - Use a non crafting item (this is my shells)
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
