Under the Sea with a little Mermaid

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? Are you all prepared for Easter? Just one more day and it will be the Easter holidays for me and just two days to go until the wedding.

I have been playing with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens again. I hunted through my stash until I found this LOTV stamp of a cute little mermaid.


For the background  I added lots of die-cut nautical images including anchors, ships and ship's wheels. I added a doily for good measure. 


I wish you could see the sparkle in the photo graph. I used watercolour paper and I stamped the image in black archival. Now for the confession I had to put a die-cut on the image to hide a smudge at the bottom of the image. Covering the smudge affected the whole design. 


I was quite pleased with how the card turned out in the end. I do love the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and I think I will have to buy some more. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. The weather has been very nice here but I think it will have changed by the weekend which is a shame for the wedding. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  15. Great image and such a lovely card Jackie! I think the die cuts are perfect and if you hadn't said we'd never have even thought you were hiding a smudge - aren't we the worst for being too honest though :)

    Fingers crossed for good weather for the wedding, my heart sank a bit at the forecast - although today is absolutely glorious of course! Hope it all goes well - and they do say rain is meant to be lucky on your Wedding Day ;)

    Hugs
