Mermaid in May


Hello my lovelies hows life? I must say Im looking forward to the 
Bank Holiday weekend, but only because i get more time to
do colouring , i could really do with the practise.
So lets get on with the show I have a couple of cards that i
would like to share with you lovely peeps today, its so unlike me to post mid week, 
but i still cant believe that we have internet that works lol.

The first card i would like to share with you is Mermaid in May

the stamp is available from Crafts and Me its a 
Jasmine Becket Griffith stamps and its called Mermaid Pearl 
I colour her with Copics I also used some Pearl moon Metallic gilding wax
on her tail to give it a wet look, I cant quite remember the colours i used 
for her hair or bodice and tail.The back plate is from Papertrey Ink
and its the Quatrefoil cover plate. I also had a go at a watercolour
 background.

The second is the dreaded With Sympathy card,

for this card I used a Chocolate Baroque stamp
I heat embossed the the stamp with Teal Obsidian 
embossing powder that i purchased from The Stampman about
9 years ago and added a few faux gems to give it a little light.
I also used a Memory box die for the butterfly border.

Have a lovely day my friends and Thank You 
so very much for stopping by in your busy day
it means alot :) xx
Take care
