Little Mermaid

Good Evening my Crafty Friends and Followers

This is going to be my last "live" post until Monday as I am off to Harrogate tomorrow.  That doesn't mean to say that there will be no posts for a few days, I have 3 scheduled posts over the next 3 days while I am away for you to look at and comment if you so wish.  I wish you all a happy weekend and of course wishing  you all a fabulous Mothering Sunday and that you all get spoilt.

Some happy news for me too today, my second grandchild is going to be a little girl and my hubby and I are thrilled to bits as we only had boys so it is a lovely change to get more girly clothes etc.  Alice is doing well and the new baby is healthy too from what the Doctor's said when Holly had her scan today.

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is A5 to which I have matted pale blue pearlescent card.  I have cut the edges of the card with a wavy cut.
2.  The second layer is cut out with one of my Spellbinder dies which I have used marbling inks onto in golds and purples.
3.  The little mermaid is one of the paintings by Christine Haworth's Dream Tide.  This is the lady who has also done the Paintbox Poppets and Angel Whispers.  Love her designs and I have had these a long time.
4.  To finish off I added the sentiment and a couple of decoupage shells and a couple of real shells.

Thank you for stopping by today
