my first play with george

Thank You to louly for your scrummy George i just couldn't wait to have a play.
The first card George the diver i have made using sketch #8 on My Paper World. I used one of my cuttlebug folders on mirror card for the back part of the card, layered onto blu glitter card, the next layer is a blue watery paper from my stash yet again layered onto blue glitter card. I coloured george with my Sakura stardust pens to give his wet suit a wet glossy look, the bubbles are made with 3D Crystal Laquer. I finshed it off with some seaweed and fish that i found in my scaps box and the sentiment is from the george print.
The second card i just made because i loved the image, (As do i all the dottie and george images). All the cardstock i have used is from either my stash or my matting and layering box that i bought for a £1 from the craft show at the NEC (can't remember which stall as i bought sooo much). Mulberry paper is used on one of the matting pieces. George is coloured using my watercolour pencils and the sentiment is hand written with sakura stardust. The card is finished off with faux stitching

Wow Jilly, I love them both, I really like the use of the bubbly embossing folder, I've got that one but I never thought of using it. I Darts card is so well done, the colouring is perfect and the layering works really well (I love that image too)
Thanks for letting me know about your cards, I love to see everybodies George and Dottie creations.
