When planning my project I selected the colours and also took inspiration from the pictures on the left, I just love the rose bouquet at the top left so decided to have a posy of roses on my card.
It is nice to bring out some of the stamps which have been around for a while, instead of using new releases and I felt the lovely Lani Mermaid was just perfect for my project.
I coloured Lani with Copics and Promarkers, addubg touches of Spica Glitter Pen here and there. I used a plain oval nestabilities die to cut out the image and added this over a layer of buttery cream coloured card cut with a scalloped oval die. I then added Frosted Lace Stickles around the edge of the plain oval layer.
The pink background paper was from my stash and I embosed a piece of melon coloured card with a Koi Pool Cuttlebug embossing folder - you can just about see the Koi swimming around under the image layer. The sentiment is from the QKD August WIS kit and I again used the Stickles around the edge of the sentiment layer.
The leaf fronds were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the tiny pink and white roses were from my stash. The wired gems are by Magnolia and the pink ribbon is from my stash.
I hope you enjoyed today's project and that you'll drop by again soon, til then - Happy Crafting!
