Blue roses

It's nice to have a bit of time off work to colour and distress (or should that be de-stress) :)

This beautiful mermaid digi image Scarlet Lips from Ching-Chou Kuik was my choice to colour today.  I used my favourite ProMarkers to colour her with and used some biro to highlight her hair.  I've also added some Deco Art glitter to her hair and jewellery.

She's mounted onto distressed papers from Lili of the Valley/NitWits Solids - Snow Princess, Lili of the Valley Frosty Christmas and Craft Creations Pastel Chic.

The ribbon is vintage ivory fluted sheer edged from The Ribbon Girl.  I've hand tied a bow in the same ribbon.

The crystal bead spray to the left of the image was bought from Hobby Craft ages ago.  The self adhesive pearlised gems also came from Hobby Craft.

The final embellishments are a silver anchor and a silver fish from The Ribbon Girl.

Finally managed to get this blogged now I've done my socialising bit :)

Hope you're all having a good break
