Mermaids beside the sea!

Hi everyone, are you relaxing this weekend? I am! 

Feeling the heat and vibrancy of summer today and made this card for the Delicious Doodles July Challenge – Beside the Sea.

I have used Steampunk Mermaid. This is the Stamp from Lost Coast Designs.

I have coloured her with alcohol pens and added some sparkle with sparkle pens and sticklers. The papers are from First Edition Storytellers collection.

Art Deco inspired by 42nd Street

For our Easter staff gathering we went to see a preview of the wonderful 42nd Street musical, at Dury Lane theatre. What a spectacular show! 

The above  card is inspired by the stunning scenery and costumes in the show. The dies are from Tattered Lace from the Art Deco Classic collection. The papers are from the CD rom that accompanies the dies. I paperpieced the dress and I used Sparkle pens to create the city reflection. 


The card above is made using the Tattered Lace dies again. It is inspired by the show and a scene starring  Sheena Easton as Dorothy Brock. 

I highly recommend the show so much glitz and glamour.  I was using jazz hands the whole way through.
