The Tide Always Turns......


Good morning folks!
I finally got round to inking up the adorable Little Mermaid Tilda for this card and I put the flash on my camera to try catching all the sparkle I added...... this image just screams to be glittered right?!! And I knew I could find the perfect papers to work with the deep sea theme as I had some delish Webster's Pages tucked away just waiting to be cut into...... as always with these papers I had to stroke before I could cut, lol! Emma still has a few sets left in her store here but you'll have to be quick, they're selling out fast!


I used some lovely satin star flowers which I bought recently on EBay, as I thought they looked like little stafish..... then I added a few pearl stars from my stash. Not much more to say really, as I didn't over-embellish because the papers and the lovely image do so much of the work.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Metal

Kaboodle Doodles - Add a Little Metal

Allsorts - Primary Colours

By The Cute & Girly - Animal Antics (does a mermaid count as an animal, lol?)

Stampin' Sisters In Christ - Put the Past Behind You and Move On


I'm off to work now so I'd best get dressed...... have a wonderful day and a lovely weekend and thanks so much for stopping by ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
