Pearl The Mermaid by Saturated Canary..............

Hello my lovelies I am back with a card for you & a new digi image.
Krista who designs the Simply Sassy range for Sugar Nellie has now opened her own digital image shop Saturated Canary so you can now buy her fabulous art in digi stamps.........now I love digi stamps so altho I tried to resist buying any (you dont want to know how many in-inked ones I have) I did weaken & it didnt take long for me to weaken. I thought 'Ooooh I will pop over you know just to have a peekskie..........I will NOT buy any mmmmmmmm would you believe 4 fell into my basket, I tell ya those darn cyber baskets they are lethal........I've heard there is more images this weekend.......I daren't go over yet tho lol....
Anyway here is my first image for you all & I have to say I so enjoyed colouring her especially her hair.

I used Whiff Of Joy 6x6 Paper pad to decorate my 6x6 On The Edge Card blank & used Kraft card from my stash for matting. All paper has been splodged with white acrylic paint.

The gorgeous Silky Crushed Ribbon is sooooo beautiful & was my last so I need to get more now.......oh darn it....ribbon shopping.........;0)

My latest order from Bunny Zoe's contained the fabulous Whimsy Mini Postage stamps & Mini Postage Die which I stamped onto kraft & went around the edge with a touch of white paint.

The gorgeous image is 'Pearl a Mermaid' & isnt she just sooooo pretty. I coloured her with Copics & kept to light colours to show just how pretty she is........& also cus I luuurrrvvve blue's lol.
I cut her out & placed her on foam pads & lay her on some blue paper to imitate water....well the colour anyway lol.

The leaves I cut using a Magnolia Doo Hickey & then attached a Mulberry Daisy.
I enjoyed making this card & it all just flowed together swimingly..........lol sorry for the pun lol.

Well I'm away now to finish off one of the crochet baby blankets I'm doing for someone, I will be back later to hop along your blogs to catch up with you all.
Thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate it mmwah.
Squishy hugs to all xoxoxoxo

Challenges I'm Entering.............

Angela said...

I too had the same problem. I went last night and 11 of these cute images ended up in my cart. I am just waiting on them to be sent to me. But it's not like I don't have rubber and digi's that have never been colored to play with.lol. I have a ton!!!! I just can't help myself. I told you I had that disease that I think I have to have everything, but we all now it is so hard t use them all at them same time.
Vicky, I think she turned out just simply gorgeous. I love the light brown and blues you used. Her hair looks beautiful.
I hope you are doing well.
Hugs:)
