Mermaid - Saturated Canary

I am so thrilled today. I have been invited to be guest designer for June for I love Promarkers. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I opened the email.

Finally gotten around to making another card, have to admit I felt a little rusty and not sure that I really like it. Love the image which is yet another Saturated Canary.


She is cut with Spellbinders labels 6, with a faux nestie in rainbow mirror card. Backing papers are from Nitwits. Embelishments and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from a freebie set I got ages ago.

She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils and edged with distress ink.
(Don't know what is wrong with my camera because she looks a little out of focus to me, or it could be just my eyes)


The inside reflects the front.

I am entering I love Promarkers challenge # 119 'Use a digi',  Allsorts Challenge Wk 157 'Beside the seaside' and Do You Stack Up challenge 'Under the sea'.

Can I say a huge thank you to everyone who follows my blog and leaves comments for me, you really are a great encouragement.
Promise my next one will be better, it has to be as it will be for my GD spot :).


Thanks again for looking

Hi Eileen, so nice to have you back and I hope you have had a nice break. The weather hasn't been too bad for the last couple of weeks, maybe you have brought this horrible weather back with you?? If so, Ta lol.
Love the card, it's beautifully coloured and I love the way it has been put together, including the faux nestie - I have loads of mirri and very rarely use it, I need to get over this thing I have about it because it always looks really nice as a matt.
Looking forward to seeing what you make for us this month, everyone was in agreement about you being our guest designer for the month, your work is amazing and everyone loves it.
So, nice to see you back and keep up the good work,
take care
Andy
