Ruby Lil Ragamuffin

Good Morning from a very grey and miserable day here in Warrington.  As I am typing this and looking out of the window the garden's look really sorry for itself!!!!  I can't wait for Spring now as I have had enough of this cold.  Still very busy in my crafty piece of heaven at the moment but needs must at the moment.  I hope you are all well and staying warm and of course enjoying your crafting.

Today I have I made in one of my quieter times using Sherri Baldy's Ruby Lil Ragamuffin!  I really enjoyed playing with this little mermaid and I hope you like what I have done.

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Hunkydory which I have covered with some K & Co paper which has lovely shells on it.
2.  Printed Ruby off onto Super Smooth card and coloured in using a combination of watercolour pencils and Sakura Glitter pens.
3.  Cut topper out using Spellbinder scalloped rectangle and distressed using Dew Drops Brilliance orchid ink.  I have glittered her scraf using iridescent glitter.
4.  Added gems and ribbon from my crafty stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
