On your special day

I was asked to create the Editor's Selection cards for the July edition of Making Cards Magazine. I had to use the super Mermaid Folk papers that were free with the magazine and also available on the free CD.

The aim of these cards is to show what can be created using just the free images and papers along with a few basic stash items.


These images come in black and white, so I coloured them using ProMarkers and added a ribbon to cover the join.  The sentiment is from an Ooh La La Creations CD.


Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

Oh, these silhouettes were part of the mermaid set as well? They're so versatile, like little trees or as weed for a seabed...
