Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend – we had one of those nice weekends where we didn’t HAVE to be anywhere and do anything so we could just relax and decide what to do as we went along! I managed to fit in a little bit of reading which is one of my favourite things to do – I’m currently reading World Without End by Ken Follett – what are you reading?
Today’s card is the result of playing with Brusho to see what it could do. When this piece was dry I immediately thought ‘deep ocean’ so then it evolved from there. I love the circle to create a ‘window’ into the ocean through which to view the mermaids at play!
How awesome are those mermaid images – the large one on top of the circle is cut from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP (you can’t see it in the pics, but she is all sparkly!), and the smaller mermaids are stamped with the Magical Day stamp set, coloured using Stampin’ Blends and then cut with the coordinating Magical Mates Framelit dies – I love it when everything coordinates like that!
The Brusho background was achieved using watercolour paper and a water spritzer – if you would like to learn how to do this effect then join my Brusho Technique Class on Saturday 17 March, you’ll learn this technique plus several others!
Can you see those tiny little 3-D bubbles – they are the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes – you will see I used them in several places on this card and even coloured some of them to match.
