Floating By To Say Hi!


Hi everyone!
It is time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Christi Thorsen's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week it is my turn to issue the challenge which is a sketch challenge.

I decided to use the new “Under the Sea” Sophia for my card today … isn’t she just adorable, this will be the SOTM for January. I masked the mermaid and used my copic airbrush to add color around the image … this looks a lot clearer in real life then in the photo.

PP-Mermaid-Easel-wm As you can see I decided to turn my card into another Easel card … if you haven’t worked out by now I am getting completely hooked on these cards. They are just soooooooo easy to create. This time round I decided to use a jumbo brad in the centre of the base to keep the front of my card standing upright.
