Friday 27th August 2010

so, ok, who stole the summer? its really miserable - rain every day since St Swithins, must have done our 40 days by now and the rumour of snow next month - well!!! how flippin typical thats all I can say!

The end of the month signifys the end of another challenge over at SCD. The torso shape has proved popular this month, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the swaps....

This week is my turn to choose the theme and I've chosen:-

"....of the sea"

and here is my offering:-

white card cut to shape and coloured using DI's - the base was then stamped with a Cherry Pie rubber stamp, bubbles, these were then hi-lighted with the trusty white pen. The mermaid image is off the net. Both the image and base were coated with rock candy distress stickles to add a bit of sparkle. The edges were doodled and then inka gold applied. The text was created on the pc.

If anyone would like to join in the swap, email me thro' my contact button and I'll send you my address...really looking forward to seeing SCD'ers art in real life!!

Have a lovely weekend.

xx
