Lets Get Blogging #6

Lets Get Blogging #6

Welcome to another round of Lets Get Blogging, if you have arrived from the talented Teresa Brown's blog or started here, thanks for visiting. 

The theme  is" His and Her" cards, using the same sketch for both, changing colours, elements, sentiments to suit different genders.

I decided to make pretty much the same card twice, one for a boy and one for a girl. The sketch, and sponging of ink is the same, just changing out colours, and stamps.

The dragon image has been coloured with the Stampin Blends, and card matting has been sponged with So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red ink.

Mermaid image has also been coloured with Stampin Blends, card matting sponged with Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, and Island Indigo. Water was flicked onto card with excess removed with a paper towel, this gives a realistic water look. 

Glitter and Clear Epoxy shapes have been added ( a little hard to see in the photo, but in person gives it a great effect. I have also included the Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon (that is a Free Product throughout Sale A Bration), to add a little sweet to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I would love to hear your comments.

Next on the hop is the talented  Maria Willis.
