Beach Kitten

Good morning everyone and hope you are having a good start to the week.  For my card today I have used a cool summer image from Meljen's Designs which I won in some candy from Nancy Parker - thank you Nancy!


She's called Beach Kitten and I have coloured her with my Copics and added some Glossy Accents to her glasses and glass. The paper is by Echo Park called Splash.  I have used me Edgeabilities to make the wave pattern at the bottom and added a bit of white Distress Paint to the tips to look like foam.  The sentiment is from Scrapbooks Graphic and I recoloured it to match the card. I bought a paper crimper at the weekend, something I have always wanted but never got round to getting so I used that on the mat under the image.  I rounded the corner of the image to soften it a bit.  I added Liquid Pearls to the image too so it looks a bit like sand.  The sunglasses I bought from Imagine in the sale 10p each, they are a little brooch but I took the pin off.  The seahorse is a cuttlebug die I have had since I bought my cuttlebug.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs - Summertime
Paper Pretties - Beach Days
Sassy Cheryl's - Summer Fun


Thanks so much for looking today, I really appreciate it and it would be nice if you could leave a comment then I know you have been! Take care xx
