Make it Colourful {Reflection in water} ~ my water needs a little work!!!!


Hi there! This is a birthday card I have made for my niece. She'll be 7 next week...my where has the time gone??
I have kept it simple as I know she will appreciate the picture (mermaids mad!!) & the colouring rather than a load of embellishments.

I have also made this card to go into Make it Colourful's challenge {Reflections in water}
I'm afraid my water needs a lot of work & I tried to do too much all at once. I wish I'd just stuck to the reflections instead of trying to do ripples...oh well better luck next time ha ha!!

My mermaid is sat on a little scene I have coloured myself with no actual image just a pencil drawing. So I had nothing to guide me except my pencil sketches. Came out quite well considering!!

I don't know if you can see in the pic but I have done her tail reflecting a little orange on the water, the stone reflecting some grey & a little pinky/red for the crab.

If you want to see better pics of reflections check out the Make it Colourful's wonderful design team's makes & don't forget they're celebrating all month because its Make it Crafty's first birthday!!

hugs Helen x x

Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back. I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.


Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!! Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.

It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers. The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.

I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers. There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.

Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage…
