New Creations make a Splash!

Here are my latest creations, based on this sketch from CardPatterns:

For both cards, I used three shades of blue card stock (DCWV), cut into 1 inch by 1 inch squares, inked on the edge with Aquamarine ink (Vivid!) and adhered to the card. Then I added some dark hydrangea waves with Papier dimensional paint. To the right of the card, I have adhered with pop dots a hand-coloured Mermaid Marci (LaLa Land Crafts), which is digitally stamped/printed on white card stock and coloured with water colour pencils and Spica pens.
Two jewels are added to the top right corner of the card.

The card on the left is a Kraft card and the card on the right is a square white card, both from Envelope Solutions.
Here is a close up of the mermaids:

I have not added a sentiment to the cards and the inside is blank....I have left it up to the giver of the card! 
"Splash!" would be a great sentiment, or "Happy Birthday" or perhaps "Thinking of You!"

These cards are for sale in my Etsy Shop: JemLou Productions, click here for the link.
These cards will also be displayed in the LaLaLand Crafts Customer Gallery.

Thanks for looking! :)

Valentines Cards and SOTD

I have been MIA for a few weeks, as I have been getting my nearly 5 year old ready for school! She had her first full day today and was so exhausted she fell asleep in the car as soon as she got in! :)

Anyway, I have a few things to mention/show in this post.....

  1. I am Shop of the Day on PCF Team - you can get 10% off your order if you use SOTD10OFF.
  2. I have been working on some new cards. Here is a photo of the beginnings:

Here is the listing for the 6 cards I have available at the moment: Choose Your Sentiment for Your Valentines Card! There are also some other Valentine's Cards: Be Mine Valentine Card and More Valentines Cards.

I will post tomorrow regarding the cards featured in the Choose Your Sentiment for Your Valentines Card!
