Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.. my OH is at work both days, so I'll be getting lots of crafting time... and then he had 'in lieu' days during the week - so we'll have a couple of nice days then - I win both ways! LOL!
Now..... this weekend Alyce at Kit and Clowder is hosting her 6000 members party.... with a theme of 'Under the Sea' - and at Sugar Nellie (as we have some BEAUTIFUL mermaid images now in digi form as well as rubber), we wanted to join in the fun! The party starts later today at the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group... click on the logo...
These beautiful marine images are available in both rubber and digi - I have used Ocean's Gift.. this little mermaid has found a beautiful pearl. So with the title in mind, I also decided to give a gift.... my first ever digital paper which I created as the background for this image... all you need to do is right-click to enlarge... then save to your files. It will look quite small, but I promise it will print out at 6 x 6 inches (or whatever size you require and change it to). I created this with Photoshop Elements - and played about with gradients (thanks Colette!), and then lots of underwater marine type brushes.. Hope you like! Like I say, it IS my first ever digi paper - but now I know how to do them... watch this space!! hehe!
Now.. quelling my excitement about my digital work and back to my card.. I did LOTS of fussy cutting...... and by the time I was finished I'd decided NEVER to fussy cut again (have you seen her hair?!)... so if you see me with my Martha Stewart scissors in my hand........ tell me NO!!!
