Crafts & Me DT Card........

Good afternoon everyone its time for our new challenge over at
This week our fabulous Vix has chosen the theme which this week is...
Under The Sea
So as long as it has something to do with the sea whether it be mermaids, dolphins, fish, sea shells etc then we would love to see it. So swim on over to here & enter those fabulous creations.
Now I have to admit I was rather stuck on this one but only cus I was spoilt for choice on which image to use Teresa really does stock such a variety it took me a while to pick. In the end I went for a digi that I brought as soon as Teresa started to do digi's I remember being soooo excited & rushed over & brought them all lol. So it was about time I coloured this beauty up.....
This is 'Hidden Treasures' by the fabulous Hannah Lynn you can get this digi here...

Isn't she marvelous lol

The image is coloured with Copics sorry I didnt remember which ones as I used a lot of colours lol. You dont want to know how long I spent on colouring this lol. I will tell you tho that the hair alone took me an hour I dont know how many layers I put on to get the depth I wanted lol. The first image wasn't going how I wanted so it went to the bin I would rather waste an image than not be entirely happy with it.

The papers are from Basic Grey in all honesty I love the image but the card I hate & if I had had time it would of gone in the bin & I would of done another but I've been ill the last week so energy wise its not been great. The doc however has given me some antibiotics as I have a really bad kidney infection never mind lol.

The first flower I put on I hated cus the stickles went wrong so it went in the bin I kept the bottom layer & then attached this large gorgeous rose from Wild Orchid which I sprayed with Gold glimmer mist from here & now I think it just looks better. The sentiment is from my shelves of wood block stamps & edged with stormy sky distress ink.
Well thats it from me for now I am having a nightmare with blogger not doing what its told to do so I'm away to tell it off &.....thats not all its getting grounded!!!
Cant wait to see all of your yummy creations peeps.
Thank you for stopping by I'm gonna catch up with all my commenting now whilst I have a bit of energy lol. You dont want to know what my hobbit looks like as I still havn't finished it & I've had DT cards to make. Put it this way the pics on the page at the top of my craft room.....well it looks nothing like that at the mo lol.
I will gladly accept any offers of a big clean up & sort out lol or you come play in mine & I will come play in yours you will just have to clean mine first lol.
See ya soonies mmwah.

Hi Vicky,

So sorry to hear you're poorly, I've suffered from kidney problems over the years and know it's NO JOKE!

It wasn't until I expanded your card to huge size that I could see all the detail in it, but WOW, when I did, I was amazed, and your colouring is GORGEOUS!

Hope you're soon feeling better.
