Nostalgia Mermaid

Er litt på etterskudd med kortet mitt på grunn av en langvarig migrene, og bildene ble tatt litt slurvete så jeg fikk ikke helt frem at det er utrolig mye shimmer i fargene! Prøv og se for deg at den gulfargete bakgrunnen egentlig er gull, og det er shimmer i alt 😊 Kortet er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #195., og det nydelige motivet er fra vår sponsor Ching-Chou Kuik

Jeg har brukt et gummistempel fra Sweet Pea Stamps som ikke eksisterer lengre, men man kan kjøpe det som digistempel fra etsy shoppen hennes her! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ❤️


I'm a day behind with my DT card for this fortnights challenge #195. at Creative Fingers, as I've had a longlasting migraine.. My photos were a bit off too, so just imagine that the yellow actually is a bright shiny gold and everything is all shimmery 😊

The gorgeous motif is from our sponsor Ching-Chou Kuik. I used a rubberstamp called 'Nostalgia' from the discontinued CCK collection at Sweet Pea Stamps, but it is now available in her digistore on etsy as part of a collection of four images, wich you can find here! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ❤️ ...

I needed the mermaids tail to be a little longer than the original image to fit my die frame so I doodled a little bit with a Pigma black felt tip micron marker pen.
