Hello to you all and Happy Sunday from the UK. I am sitting watching the Men's Olympic Marathon on the TV while listing this card and it is so exciting, like every other event we have watched throughout the past fabulous two week. I am so looking forward to the closing ceremony this evening but will miss this so much. Roll on the Para Olympic Games
Enough of my waffle and onto my card for today which features Ocean's Gift from Sugar Nellie
rubber stamp and she and her little seahorse friend are stunning and a delight to work with.
List of Materials used to make this card:
6" x 6" Cardstock for base and wonderful design papers from Crafty individuals.
Wonderful rubber stamp from Sugar Nellie coloured using Promarker Pens, Specrum Noir Pens which I am loving more and more and lots of stickles glitter on her hair, top and tail - mega bling.
Lots of Pearls, pearl flourishes, pearl border, lots of individual pearls and liquid pearl decoration.
Flowers are mostly made by me using shiny glittered blue paper from my stash which has sat in my scraps box for about a year and I am so pleased to have used. Cut using a Do Hickey Die and a Die-Namic Die and each has a pearl in the centre. 2 fabric flowers from Marianne Designs have been used and a large daisy backing flower.
Lovely net blue ribbon detail which has not shown up clearly in the pictures and silver leaf flourish.
