Little Mermaid

What a lovely day and so much achieved.  I have been on a mission to make 48 Christmas cards, they are all the same so not much in the way of interest and I am so glad I managed to finish them this morning.  I even had enough time to make a card so decided to on something non Christmas and rather girly even if it is not pink!!!!  Those who know me know I don't like pink much lol.

  • White Linen card from Craft Creations
  • Digi - Melia on her Shell-phone by Mo's Digital Pencil
  • DP designed by me
  • Dies - memory-box-big-splash-border, crafts too leaf flourish and marianne design craftables - branch
  • Promarkes (forgot to write down the colours before putting them away grrrrr)
  • Pink Liquid Pearls on ribbon, for top strap and around top of scales
  • Extreme Gold Glitter (highlighting hair although it does not really show in the photograph)
  • 3D Liquid Accent used on the shell top and the shells in her hair, again not showing well in the photo, sorry)
  • Ribbon from my stash
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

  4. What a cute card. I love the way you have used the cool waves die to create such visual movement to the sea .... did you also create the sea backing paper? The leaves and branches also appear to be moving in the sea .... very clever. Having been with you when you were choosing your new dies I am really enjoying seeing how you are using them in your cards. I love your pretty mermaid too - I would have appreciated being her a couple of weeks ago when we had a heatwave :-) Well, what a productive day you had, finishing 48 Christmas Cards, all the glass etching AND this card, that's some creative day. xxxx
