Oh it's nice to be blogging again and to be feeling somewhat human. Unfortunately I have been very unwell since contracting the flu a month ago - the flu infection led to severe asthma and now a chest infection. I'm now on some hard core drugs and slowly improving, but I think I'm also slowly going mad with boredom. You'd think I could spend time crafting while I'm forced indoors to rest, but sadly the medication gives me the shakes and colouring in is often an exercise in futility.
But it's time for our latest challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox, so shaking colouring will have to suffice!
Our theme for this challenge is:
And once again we are sponsored by Make It Crafty. I had such wonderful visions of how this card was going to look, but somehow the reality left me a bit disappointed.
It's something a bit different for me to attempt, a big departure from my normal fondness for lace and distressed edges. I attempted to add a net made from a bit of old bandage and added a gorgeous little starfish charm. I coloured my image with copics and added some sparkly jewels. All the blue cardstock was spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist for that underwater sparkle.
I was going to attempt another card, to do justice to Zoe's gorgeous images, but just haven't been well enough.
I hope you'll pop over to The Squirrel and The Fox to see what my teammates have come up with. There's some stunning mermaids and underwater sea creatures to feast your eyes on. Of course I also hope you'll enter your own Sea creation for your chance to win the Make It Crafty prize.
