In a bit of dash this morning, but I really wanted to share this card that I made using a Sweet Pea stamp called Aloha. I find these images irresistable to colour, and you can just drift away into your own world. :)
Anyway, I followed the fab sketch by Bev over on Friday Sketchers and was really aiming for an underwater world feel to this card (without the water!) lol. Its a lot more shimmery in real life, as all of her tail is accented with green glitter pen, and her hair sparkles with crystal star sakura.
I hand-stitched the backing panel with gold thread and used K&Co papers, promarkers, glitterpens, stickles and marianne flourish dies. Sea shell charms, organza ribbon, fibres and irridescent flowers from stash.
I am entering this card in the following competitions:
