Dawn of Aquarius

Hi all,

Today's card is two challenges today. One for Mad For Markers April Showers challenge.  We had to think wet... Mermaids were mentioned and I immediately thought of my super cute Sweet November mermaids but my hand hovered of the Aquarius girl from the Sweet November Star Signs and I pick her up.   I used copics to create the waves in her hair (BG23, BG15,G00), the rest of the face was done also with copics. I used the shells from Stampin' UP! to help create a watery theme.

 The other challenge is for the Stampin' for the Weekend Sparkle and Shine Challenge. I used glitter glue to highlight the edges and abit of bling in the sentiment.  The papers, ribbon and sentiment are all from Stampin' Up!
Thank you for looking

I'm back!

Hello all
I am back creating cards.  I found myself losing interest and making crap cards so I stopped.  Now I am back, I think it will still take me a while to get back to things but I will try.
My first card is a mother's day card designed for the Quixotic Challenge which was a sketch.

What I visioned for this challenge was completely different to what turned out.  I worked with it and hopefully it doesn't look stupid.   I coloured the digi image (from the net) with copics R22,R46, R59,G96,G94 and G85.
Thank you for looking
