Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well I took my youngest Jake school this morn he looked soooooooo smart........they had new uniforms in september & they have to now wear blazers, Jake was dreading it. However with the very small children & the very tall ones they had problems with the blazers so it was friday when he finally got his. Jake is tall & has quite a stocky build, he could pass for a bouncer you see at doors when he wears a black jacket lol. So I took him school looking very smart but rather unhappy, he has a maths exam today & also he thinks he looks like a 'plonker' lol.
Anyway its my card for Crafts & Me store blog today & I REALLY need to get a crack on crimbo cards & I went into the hobbit & found this image. I coloured her & glittered her& the poinsettia's just before my break but then completely forgot about her........so here she is now finally on a card.
This is 'Christmas Eve Mermaid' by the fabulous Hannah Lynn exclusive to Crafts & Me Store, I coloured her the same colours as Hannah had for hers.
Lace, velvet ribbon & snowflake charm are all from my stash.
Instead of decorating the inside to match the front I have lined the back with another sheet of card so it feels as strong as the front.....the fronts always feel stronger cus they have so many layers on them. I've then added a sheet of thick paper & part-stamped the image & then added a sentiment. Hopefully it will save me time instead of decorating inside.........unless for family & special ones if you know what I mean.
I coloured her with Copics..........not sure of colours tho. The sky I actually forgot about til I had made my card & then last minute I stuck my finger into some 'Metallic Rub-On' & rubbed it in the background.
Materials used were........ Websters Pages christmas papers, edges inked with Vintage Photo......, matted on top of 'Olive Green' A4 Card, altho they only seem to have the paper I think now.
Suede feeling A4 card for the card base.
2 red poinsettia flowers covered in glass glitter & a gold pearl added to the centre, I removed the stamen thingy's.........my techincal term for things lol.
The holly& cherries was a crimbo decoration thing from last year from Wilkinsons.
Crafts & Me have new shipping charges which you can check out here.
Well thats all from me folks thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & for your lovely comments I will see you all during today.
Huge huggles to you all mmwah xoxoxoxox
