And Breathe......

Hi all, this is the first of two quick posts this afternoon as I still have to do dinner and get my washing in - roll on when my daughter is older and she can help a bit.
Anyway this card uses a beautiful image from Michelle Perkett via the fabulous Special 50/50 club. I'm into my pencils again at the moment so I've coloured this beautiful mermaid image in with my pencils and no they're nothing special - just regular pencils and a few watercolours and a couple of metallic ones for good measure. Oh and I couldn't resist a bit of glitter. Oh I tell a lie, I did use my copics for her skin as it looks so much better than my pencils for skin (well I think so anyway). The backing paper is just some wrapping paper that I have lying around (if it doesn't move or isn't used then it's fair game for my craft stash hehehe) and then 2 piece of ric-rac ribbon and a flower from stash, with yes you've guessed it some more glitter - a mixture of red and gold as I don't have orange. And that is it for this post, oh apart from the piccy - so here it is.

  1. Lovely!
    There is something just so nice about a pencil coloured image hence why I have returned to them instead of pro markers.

  2. Wow Sam, your card is stunning...I love this combination of colours together and the mermaid image is so beautiful :) Donna x

  4. Beautiful images. I too sometimes use my regular pencils I have a tin of 50 that cost about £9.00. Bargain.

    Though always use my skin tone pro markers for the face.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. You guys make my day by doing this.
