Paint The Town

I really enjoyed making this card.  At Daring Cardmakers this week they are asking us to use paint on our cards.  So here is my attempt.
I painted the background with pearly watercolours to make it look like water.  I then stamped out the mermaid and all the accessories from the woodware Little Mermaids and also painted them with pearly watercolours.  It's a shame the photo doesn't show the card at it's best as it is very shimmery

poppets blog candy

Cute card thursday's challenge this week is an autumnal theme.  As I'd been using autumnal colours in my last card, I already had the papers on my table so decided to use them again.The image is one I sent me in a swap. and it is coloured with watercolour pencils.

M is for Male

I have decide this week to have a go at the ABC Challenge.  This weeks letter is M for Male. Backing papers: handmade mulberry papers.  Not sure the manufacturer as they came in a lot of papers I recieved a while ago.

DT call for Sassy crafts

Emma at Sassy Crafts Online shop is looking for a new DT, so I thought I would give it a go.  She asked us to show on our blogs 3 specific pieces of work.

1: A stamped project
This was quite an easy one as most of my work is stamped.  The hard part was which one to choose.  Finally I chose this one.  The image and the sentiment are stamped.
2: My favorite piece of work.  I think at the moment my favorite piece has to be this one.  I can't really tell you why but i just love it.  I think it coculd be the colours and the K&Co backing papers that draw me to it.
3: A project that contains 4 square, 3 small and one large.
Here is the card I finally came up with.
I decided to make something bright and cheerful as all we have had recently is rain and i needed some cheering up.
DP was sent to me in a RAK, Ribbons from stash.  Tilda image coloured with watercolour pencils.

Wish me luck everyone I need it and it will be going to a public vote to choose the winners so if you ever pop over to Emma's site think about me and vote he he.
Would be a great birthday preasent for me 2 as it is my birthday the day after the closing date of the 21st oct.
