Under the Sea!

Hello My Crafty Friends, here we are at the beginning of another week, I hope you all had a good weekend whatever you had planned.

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments you've made on my CCC card, I have to say I loved everyone that had been made, it was a super Challenge, so thanks for that Christine.

I have managed to get some crafting done today, in between housework of course, and it's been a super day for getting washing done and out.  It's now the ironing, but that's for another day.

I've got Choral practise tonight, lots of high notes to reach, some of which I don't make, top As for goodness sake, just as well some of the sopranos can reach them.  It's a lovely piece of music though, Bach's Christmas Oratorio and our concert is in November.

So on to my card, I decided to make one to enter into;
I've used images from The Mermaid Queen Set, and tried to keep to the challenge colours, but introduced blue as we were under the sea.
Prismacolour Pencils and DI
Mesh, Ribbon and seahorse charm from The Ribbon Girl
Hobby House Pearls
Pion Papers
Star Dust and Liquid Pearls.

I must take blending lessons though, I never get it just right, but I'm pleased with it all the same.

Right I'm away now to get the dinner seen to, see you all soon.
I would like to enter my card into the ;

I've always loved seahorses and he looks great in your beautiful underwater scene. The bubble stamp really brings it to life too.

Erika said...

Hi Kate, I love this card, fab images and bubbles. As for blending, less is more, dab your sponge first on copy paper so you put less on your project and build it up.
Hope you managed to hit those high notes at practise....I think I'd smash something if I tried!

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x

The Winter Wonderland was a fun challenge & thanks to Christine for selecting that theme. I love your undersea card. You've certainly captured the light that can come down through the water and those bubbles are super. Looked to me like your blending was just fine, and this is one very pretty card. Glad that you got some house chores done too! TFS & Hugs

Sue said...

WOW, Kate, love your card. The Seahorse is wonderful, along with all the texture and color on the card. Awesome!
