I just love this card, definitely one of my favourites! The background was created by squishing Distress Oxide pads directly onto a Teflon mat, spritzing lightly with water, then placing white card over to colour.

inks: Distress Oxide – Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade & Cracked Pistachio

What if I fall?

Another background salvaged from the scrap paper that I rolled my brayer on to clean, while playing with my gelli plate. I lay the stencil down on it too, as it still had a lot of paint on, and didn’t want to waste it down the plughole. Below is what it looked like before I cut off the section for this card. I liked the bit of pink on the left.

I am in the ‘child’ zone at the moment. There will be a number of kids cards to follow. I used 3 dots of Liquid Pearls on her dress for buttons.

I remember in high school finding it difficult picking my subjects as I truly had no idea what I wanted to do as a career when I left. So hard when you’re still trying to figure yourself out, never mind everyone and everything else.

Spritz white card with water, then Distress Stain Sprays. Dry with a heatgun. Lay over stencil and sponge same inks through to correspond with background colours.

Stamp girl on separate card, colour her in with watercolour pencils, then cut out and glue onto main card. I added some stripes of Flamingo Liquid Pearls onto hat, some White Accents over her sholaces, Weathered Wood Crackle Paint onto bag and Silver Fab Foils to accents on bag.

Stamp wording in black at top left of card. Sponge around edge of card with sepia ink and attach to grey matting, then musk pink folded backing card.

“A seashell is never empty. It is filled with many things. It holds the sounds of crashing waves and the songs that mermaids sing.”

My mother gave me my first (bought) sea shell when I was about 12 years old. I remember being quite fascinated with it, thinking how some creature had fashioned this work of art, a little house to live in, an architectural masterpiece. I am still fascinated by them, and have added to my collection over the years.
