Good morning. As per usual I have been up bright & early - even though we have now broke up for the summer jollies! Good thing about that this morning is I was up to see Aaron (my middle son) & Kerry his girlfriend arrive home in the wee small hours from their holibobs in Eygpt - following a 4 hour flight delay!!!
So what's a girl to do when she has some 'me' time on her hands and has to be as quiet as a mouse?
Well, of course she gets to work on putting a card together.
I was very lucky to be sent some gorgeous new Tilda images as a RAK from a very lovely blogging friend - thanks Mandy you're a star.
Here I have used the gorgeous Mermaid Tilda - coloured with Copics and a good sprinkling of Star Dust Stickles.
I have embossed a piece of silver mirri board with Cuttlebug Swirls and then lightly inked with alcohol inks to give a watery look.
I also added a touch of Tumbled Glass distress ink to the whole image after colouring - using a dabbing technique with a baby wipe - it gives a subtle colour effect.
I have distressed and glittered all the edges of the gorgeous Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby DP's
I used a Craftworks Card with a scalloped edge as I thought it would represent an oyster shell lol!!!
The gorgeous flowers are from WOC and I have added a touch of sparkle to them.
