Coffee of the Day - Maple Fudge
Hello to all of you! the weekend is just around the corner! can you see signs of it yet? ;)
We have a new challenge over on the Aud Sentiments blog with an 'Under the Sea plus a sentiment' theme. our sponsor is the ever so lovely Aurora Wings, and we all know you want a chance to win that prize! there are some gorgeous projects on the blog to inspire your creativity, so go take a looksie!
I am using the beautiful 'Mermaid's Wish' image on my card today. isn't she gorgeous? the paper is some I had made originally for Mick's set of octopus cards. I made enough knowing that I had this beauty to create, too. ;) they were made with gelatos, glimmer mist, and SU! ink refills on watercolor paper. doily is sprayed with a lovely glimmer mist mixture as well.
flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts & Petaloo, a Martha Stewart fern punch was used to replicate coral and seaweed, dies are both by Spellbinders, and buttons are from my vintage stash. sentiment, cheesecloth bg stamp (hard to see on the handmade paper), and my ever fave little banner punch are by SU!
moss mini ric rac ties a bow made from foxglove hand dyed silk ribbon and natural burlap string. I had to add some little shells to complete the card. they seemed the perfect touch for this undersea world! :) touches of shimmerz paint and the wink of stella glitter pen were added to the main image for some extra shine and sparkle.
thank you so much for stopping by! enjoy your day!
