Im forever blowing bubbles - Sketch Saturday + Ladybug Crafts challenge

Good morning everyone...bet your singing that song now lol...well my soup went down a bomb, so well there is none left as my Daughter and her o/h took the rest home with them...so not a drop for my lunch, I love to cook for them as it doesn't happen often and if it means that huge pan of soup goes home with them I'm chuffed to bits about it...I refuse to do the weather forecast today...er....well...maybe just say yesterday was lovely and sunny and I'm holding out hope for today too, see you just knew I couldn't do it didn't you lol...my card for today is using this incredible new The Little Mermaid digi from Crafts and Me...isn't she just stunningly beautiful, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her everywhere but spread the glitter glue out so it was just a hint of glitz but that made it hard to see, I photographed her side on so you could spot it better below

I'm loving these digis so much they are such a dream to colour...I didn't want her to share the limelight with DP's so found some velvet flocked white paper and used that...all I need to finish this card off was some of these lush shiny beads from Kars hopefully to look like bubbles and a piece of white satin ribbon...well come on now do I ever not use ribbon lol...the sketch is from Sketch Saturday challenge and I'm also entering it for the WOW Challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge...I think I will head out today and maybe treat myself to something nice...who wants to bet it will be ribbon lol...I always do that, I think right I will head into town and buy myself something nice to wear or have my haircut and my legs go their own way to the craft shop and who am I to argue with my legs...whatever your up to today why not treat yourself you never know you might even manage something other than ribbon

Yes, she is stunningly beautiful, MIna and I love the setting you've given her!
I'm saving all my treats up for the Harrogate show on Sunday - it'll probably be very wallet damaging!

Bubbletastic Mina! Oh she is such a beauty, and so wonderfully coloured. Love the hint of glitter, subtle, and those bubbles are ace! I won't be treating myself to anything other than a coffee today as I splurged on LOTV and a new pair of shoes last week. It's beans on toast for the rest of the month .... Hugs Sxx

Hi Mina. Love your card. the image is very sweet and coloured beautifully. The flocked paper is perfect with the image and love how you have used the gems. Donna

Mina, you should have been a mermaid, and then those legs wouldn't always be carrying you away to some evil craft store. Back to the card... Beautiful as always and the beads are shear genius. I think I have a mermaid. Would you mind if I borrow that idea?

Amanda R said...

Love how you used the gems, will definately have to keep that idea in mind. Lovely card all the ways around.

mustavcoffee said...

Hello there Mina,
Your card is fabulous, that digi is delightful but your colouring makes it really special and how you've cut her out is brilliant. How do you do that? I know you can leave a portion out if you're cutting with a die but on 2 sides? surely you don't use a craft knife? It's so precise!
Hope you had a good trip out, I can't get too far from a craft shop either:0) xxx
