Secret Crafters -By the Sea

It my week for chosing the theme at the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge. I've had this Kraftin Kimmie mermaid image waiting patiently to be inked up for aaaaages! As a result I chose my theme specifically so I could use it. For this week challenge I want to see cards inspired by things


Unfortunately, I'm not at home just now & I haven't got my camera to show you any more photos. I'll have to add another when I get back. This is Cordelia & she is coloured with Distress Inks. I added glitter & Stickles to the shells in her hair & gave all the purple areas a light wash with pearlescent paint that you can just about see in the photo, but looks so much better IRL. I did the die cuts with Doo-Hickeys & are supposed to resemble sea weed! The papers are Basic Grey - Kioshi & the sentiment was computer generated.

The layout is based on the fab sketch at Simon Says this week so I am also entering my card there.

At Totally Gorjuss, you're free to create 'As you like it' 

I am also entering this at Papertake Weekly were the challenge is 'Dies to Die For'

I hope you'll hop on over to the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge blog to see the gorgeous inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies. As it's the end of the month it is the last chance to join in for a chance to win a fab selection of digis from our lovely sponsor, The Digi Stamp Boutique

So there you go. Hope everyone is has a great weekend & it's not too wet out there for you. Keep telling yourself the weather will get better, but it is a Bank Holiday weekend, so don't hold your breath, LOL!

Thanks so much for looking :~)
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
