Oh! HECK!!



Hello Everyone...
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and congratulations on my new DT post....really appreciated them all so much...

Back today with a card for a bit of fun....and entering this card at a challenge at..
HECK OF A CHALLENGE  [The Sea..is their theme]

I found this gorgeous elegant Mermaid on a freebie colouring site HERE ...just in case you really need to her to add to all your beautiful images...






Oh! My!!...isn't she wonderful...so voluptuous....



All coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...the papers are MME "A Mothers Love"...[as only her mother could]....



The side view....corrugated card for sand...Marianne Anchor and MB die 'Flutter Vine' and the tiny clump of oyster shells are real, and from a real beach in Australia...the pearl is not.... but the shells accidently found their way into my pocket while we were battling the cold wind and rain while on holiday..lol..and what better way to enjoy that by walking along a desserted beach..freezing to death.

Some vellum bubble stickers and wee fish stickers were added to finish everything off...

Thats all for today...will see you tomorrow...hope you are having a great weekend...we have had solid  rain for 5 days, and my hair it sooo big I can hardly fit through doorways..lol..I look like a member of the Jackson five...but blond!!..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Oh, she's lovely! She's not exactly a beauty, but let's say her face has "character":) The corrugated paper works so well as sand, and your chosen die cut elements ans sea shells are perfect for this underwater scene. Really fun and cute card - well done!

It's a real cracker Chrissy I love that image not exactly what I envisaged when I used to pretend to be a mermaid when I was younger!!! Now I can't get the image of you dancing and singing ABC it's easy as one two three with the rest of the Jacksons, shaking your big hair! Susan xx

She's hilarious - love the expression on her face, and the corrugated seabed is inspired!

I was so interested to hear you found Umbrella Man rather sad on the tag today - I agree... I think it's the angle of the head - he always looks melancholy to me!
