Abby with feathers

I have had great fun working with this newly released Abby Mermaid stamp from Queen Kat Designs. 

For my card today, I coloured Abby with Copics and Promarkers adding tiny touches of yellow Spica glitter pen on the flowers and stars and a little clear on her hair and tail.

The background papers are from the Papermania 'Spring Life' 8x8 paper pad which I am really loving at the moment.  The edge of the brown paper was cut using a new Martha Stewart border punch which cuts out a nice line of pansies and is very pretty and different.  I punched out the flowers from some pale blue paper and added fronds cut from light green paper with my Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment is from the QKD Whimsical Ink monthly kit for January and I inked only the word 'Love' from the stamp, cut it out and dragged a brown ink pad around the edges. 

I cut the Abby image close to the edge of the stamped area and dragged the brown ink pad around this to match the sentiment.  I haven't used feathers on my cards for a very long time, but I felt I wanted to use something different on this one, so dug out my box of feathers and added three behind the image layer. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today and allowing me to share my work with you - I appreciate your support.  It is great to get feedback and I'd love it if you left me a comment today.

she looks fabulous Wynneth and love the fluffy feathers in behind! I am absolutely shattered after a day with the grandkids and trawling around Tavi, but it was fun!
