Hello and welcome! Thank you so much for visiting me. Today I have an underwater card for you which I cannot take all the credit for! The gorgeously coloured and textured seahorses and star fish were sent to me by my wonderful friend Anne. Anne, very kindly, sent me some blanks too but I wanted to use the ones she coloured first!
Oops, excuse the corner of the box in shot that I use to take my photos in! I used a left over piece of a Brusho background I had previously made for the sea and just added all the elements! I love the colours of the seahorses and starfish against the background. The little shells and the moss (from Anna Marie Designs and I think looks like seaweed) were glued on with Pinflair glue gel and the sentiment is from Sheena Douglass and is embossed with white detail powder onto snippets of purple card. The bubbles are stamped using a very old stamp and I managed to get some ink spots on the background so decided to add the lovely turquoise Stickles to cover it up and add sparkle around the seahorses. The pretty stones came from Anne too and I edged the panel with Distress Ink.
I do feel like I cheated rather with this card as the impressive bits were not done by me! Thank you so much Anne!
I would like to enter this into Pixies Snippets Playground 229 this week as I used Brusho background snippet and snippets of card for the sentiment.
On a separate matter not connected to crafting at all - some of you already know my husband, Darren, is also stuck at home long term ill. Part of his illness is that all sound causes him extreme pain. This is particularly awful for him as he is a record collector and music is a huge part of his life and, of course, now that's pretty much been taken away from him. So, to stop him going bonkers and to give him something to do that involves music, he has started a blog talking about different albums he has and linking to various sources so people can have a listen to his favourite tracks. His taste is extremely varied and he has already posted some awesome stuff! So for any of you who might be interested (or know anyone who might be interested), here is the link to Stritch Manzello's Record Room. Thank you!
Thank you so much for visiting me and have a fabulous week. Take care! Christine
