Mermaid Tilda

Good morning everyone!

My gosh, it's the last Sunday of the month already?
To me time flies too quickly these days; there are so much
to enjoy in life, it's hard to find time to do it all.
I must say I still enjoy card making. It allows me to
express my creativity and connect with others likewise.

Enough babbling.
Today, we have a new challenge for you at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
This week is a Magnolia Only challenge~ Add sparkles.

For my DT creation, I made a card using Little Mermaid Tilda from the
Bon Voyage collection and sketch from CLP's current challenge.

The image was water colored with Distress Inks.
I added Viva Decor glitter gel here and there on the mermaid.

I Frantaged Shabby White and Shabby Blue around the image and DPs.
 I also added some rhinestones and sparkle bead string to give extra glamour.

I decorated the background with Magnolia Peacock Feather die cuts and
 chrysanth flowers; I think they resemble coral and sea anemones.

DP is Magnolia Blue Magic Bubbles from Prince and Princess collection.
Dies used are Magnolia DooHickey, Go Kreate, and Spellbinders.

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
K&G cream chrysanthemum, canterbury rose pink flower collection,
aqua sparkle bead string, Angelica ivory tulle lace,
ivory jute mesh ribbon, cream and blue seam binding ribbons.

I would love it if you can join us at The Ribbon Girl Blog
and see my teammates lovely creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I know what you mean. Time's been flying sooooooo quickly! I can't believe May is almost over already. :-o Just one more months and the summer holidays will start. Can't wait! I will be pretty busy this summer, but in a good way so I'm really looking forward to it. :)

The card you made is wonderful. Reminds me of the sea and the hot summer days. I wouldn't mind if we got some more of those here! The white and blue around the image and the dps look great and really add a special something. Another gorgeous creation from your craft corner. :)

Hugs! xx
