Ahoy there!

Hey everyone, it's Monique here today! 

Today I've created a bauble with the lovely Mermaid stamp from Polkadoodles called 

The stamp is colored with Distress Re-inkers en Distress Markers.

This is the back of my work. 
I've used a lovely sentiment from the lovely Mermaid collection.
The shells are a combination from stamps I've colored and real shells

This is the top I've created for this bauble. Again there are several shells colored by me and some dies from my stash.

On this picture you can see them as a combination. 
To finish the bauble I've used some Stickles, fur, ribbon and pearls.

After I put the bauble together I've used a MDF holder.
Again I have used some fur to complete it.

Make your Heart Sing...

Hi it's Anjie here sharing a make with you.

I have used the Heart Sing stamp set to make this. And I am also showing you an idea on how to hide a mistake.

I stamped the beautiful flower image randomly over a 14cm square piece of card, leaving a space in the centre for the sentiment. I then coloured the flowers with Copic Markers. I wanted the flowers to pop more from the page so I outline them with a blue marker to add a bit of shadow. Well as you can see I dropped a pen and ruined the card front. Or did I?
 I was quite pleased with the colouring on the flowers and really didn't want to bin it so I stamped a couple more flowers onto some more card and coloured them in. I then fussy cut one out and placed it over where I had made a blob. I turned the card base over and marked on the back on the flower where to trim to match the card.
I then put the extra flower on 3D foam to add further interest.
 And then so it looked like I had meant to do that all along I coloured and fussy cut another flower and mounted onto 3D foam and place over the flower at the top left, offsetting the bottom one.
I then mounted the card base onto some black card and then onto a 15cm square card.
