For my card I have used Pearl Princess which was designed by Hannah Lynn.  I've coloured my Digi image with my copics and then I have covered the image with Pearl Glimmer Mist and then a little squirt of Gold Glimmer Mist.  I've also distressed my edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, to give it a bit of a Vintage Look.  So here you go I hope you love it as much as me:-)

My Paper is from Websters and I loved the effect the Spider Webbing Ribbon gives to the kinda underwater theme I was going with:-)

I'm pleased with how this one turned out, looks rather cute actually, despite me making a total mockery of poor Tilda's hairdo.... Oh well.... I hope you still love it as much as me:-) 

So make sure you add your wingy cards to Paper Play this week, there is an awesome prize (as if it would be bad???) I can't wait what inspirational work you have install for me:-)

Tree of Secrets

Hi Everyone

It's my turn today at Crafts and Me, something new to Showcase.... The image I have for you is by Hannah Lynn and it's called Tree of Secrets!!  You can see the lock on the tree trunk!! Cute!!!

It is a pretty involved image but I took my time using my Copic's, and then in the very background I've used some Pebbles Chalk in Shimmery Blue/Green and Grey... but I wasn't all that happy with the amount of shimmer, so I then smothered the whole thing with some yummy pearl Glimmer Mist!!!

So here she is I hope you love her as much as me:-)

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the Cute tag is a Marianne Designs Die and the stamps on the tag are by Prima.  I've also used some yummy Prima Lace and Cheese Cloth.

The Paper is also Prima - Floral Fantasy... goes pretty well I thought!!! 

Anyway thanks for looking:-)
Lots of Cuddles
