My Little Mermaid........


Good morning everyone!  It's Friday and I'm so very glad!  It has been a very busy week for me!  This morning I want to share a little Magnolia image that I colored with distress inks.  I think she is just too cute!  For this card I actually cut up a box and peeled off the top layer of paper so I could get to this cool waffle look board!  I then painted it and then added some cheese cloth under the image.  On the base card I stamped some pretty swirls and then used some embossing powder on it to give it more detail.  I didn't seem to have any pretty paper to go along with this so I did it this way.  Then I added some Dew Drops for bubbles and a pretty flower to the corner and she is out the door!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I have enjoyed doing it!  This one will probably just go into my stash of cards until I need her.    Thank you so much for dropping by.  If you like my card, leave me a comment.  I always love reading what you have to say.  Well I am off to get my day started; lots of chores to do again today.  I hope you have a good day and as always, remember to "Breathe"!

Just beautiful!! I love how the cheese cloth looks like fish net and those bubbles are just too cute! You did an awesome job coloring with Distress inks. I'll have to give that a try... they are great tones.

As usual, I've just had an extended visit to catch up on all your projects. I am so amazed at what you come up with in your designs--you truly have a gift!
Hope all's well and the weather's cooperating in your neck of the woods. It's gotten chilly here again. I knew all that sunshine and light-jacket weather was just a teaser, but part of me was still hoping it'd stick around!
Have a great weekend!
