Shell mermaid easel card


It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for  July at Craft-deebowz. .This month  The Design Team had to create a project using  the theme of mermaids and use the colours teal and or tan..
This month our wonderful sponsor is Cute As A Button and I have used their  gorgeous shell mermaid digital  image which can be found HERE

I coloured the image with promarkers and used a crafters companion clear glitter overlay pen to give her tail some sparkle. I made the round easel shaped card using grande scalloped circle dies and kraft card.The die I used to create the swirls on the base is a die from sue Wilson from the Gemini range. The anchor and flourishes are  made using a memory box dies The tags are pre made from prima.The stunning flowers are handmade using the same papers I used on the project and a stamp and die set called crafty cocktail flowers and they are from joycrafts.
The stunning 4 looped  bow was created with 2 different colours of organza ribbon and created  using my Craft-deebowz bow maker ...It gives me perfect bows every time and is so easy to use

Challenge time at Craft-Dee BowZ

Hi all

We have a fab sponsor for this month and it is
 Cute as a button

They will be offering the lucky winner 2 SINGLE IMAGES  chosen by the winner

For my DT project this month I have made this cute card using a Mo manning image called Tiara..She is a joy to colour .I used promarkers to colour her in .The papers are from a paper pack I found in poundland !!!.The banner is made using a die from memory box. The sentiment came with the image from Mo Mannings digital pencil.The flowers are handmade by Lucinda  from Petal Lu..The gorgeous ribbon now was made using myCraft-Dee BowZ.  BOW MAKER ..I get perfect bows every time with this easy to use tool and you can get all the info you need on how to get one for yourself at Craft-Dee BowZ.  .Once my bow was made I used my heat gun and quickly run it over the bow which made it crinkle and look shabby... I also added gems from my Monthly pack that my CDB boss sent me ....
