I’m back … again!  Good grief, get totally carried away Bev!  This was a super quick make, I love these vintage looking images from Noor! Design.

I’ve heat embossed the Paper Art elements with Frantage Old Silver, LOVE the look you get, from paper to metal charm lookalikes in a matter of seconds.

I’ve used the All at Sea paper pad, the browns in the flowers work so well with the blues in the pad.

You keep me anchored

Smthing a bit different today.  It’s my DT card for Noor! Design and this one pushed the boundaries I can tell you.  It’s also (sort of) got me out of the pink phase.  When I first saw the stencil I had no idea what to do with it, but ended up having a total blast playing and really love how this turned out.

Now then, I coloured this image absolutely ages ago, so can’t remember the colours.  However I think these are what I used:

Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E44, 42, 40
Blue: N5, BG75, 72, 70
Green: N5, YG03, 01, 00, 0000
Shells, seahorse: E33, 31, 30

The leaf shape is on the stencil, love how it works with the flowers and still keeps the sea theme.  I used the new Dutch Doobadoo Wavy Mask to create the bubbles, they look awesome peeking out behind the flowers

I’ve had such fun with this month’s release – it pushed my boundaries and kept me away from pink!
