Good morning to you all in the land of blog

In The Sea
what a fabulous them don't you think? I did and really enjoyed playing with this one.
Don't forget that this is the last chance to be in this months draw for the wonderful prize offered by
So what did I create for my design team inspirational piece
I created a card to inspire someone, using a fabulous fantasy art image from Sweet Pea Stamps
The base layer and contrast colour is a cheerful yellow and the papers are in Aqua's for the sea and they are from the Papermania Capsule Mono Collection. Where else do I start. Marianne dies used for the sea fronds and the flowers in the main from Wild Orchid. The cheesecloth pulled and laid under the image and layers to look like the crests of the waves. With a little fish caught up in the netting at the top and the boat wheel also hid in the netting. The corners are punched with an MS corner punch and the little pearls from the Hobby House.
Think I thought I was creating a scrap layout, with so much going on.
Some close ups
The ships wheel charm
The little fish charm
The flowers which have been gently kissed by the waves of glitter, icicle stickles
and the oh so important image coloured in copics.
