Share an Oldie Friday

Good Morning!!!

I've decided to join my friend Kate and Erika from Snappycrafts (who came up with this fab idea) and blog one of my older cards from May 2012.  I think this was one of my first digi stamps ever and is called Pearl from Saturated Canary which of course features the artwork of the extremely talented Krista Smith.

I made it for a challenge on the Docrafts website and I remember putting an awful lot of work into it.  It was really touchy feely with the pleated ribbon, ric rac and liquid pearl bubbles.  I was really pleased with my colouring at the time but looking back now I think the Arielesque hair and my blending leaves a lot to be desired.  I'm not sure if I had completed my full set of Promarkers by then either!  I think (hope) my photography skills have improved a bit since then too!  The papers are still up there amongst my favourites, they are Tropical Travelogue by Graphic 45.  My daughter eventually gave it to one of her friends as a birthday card and if I remember correctly she wrote in it upside down and I had to do a fix up job on it!  It's a fantastic digi I will definitely have to print it off again and have another go at colouring her.

I've enjoyed my wee wander down memory lane, I'll have to see if I can dig out another oldie for next week!

Have to go now, we are heading to the Highland Wildlife Park and Aviemore today so I better get my skates on!

Bye for now,

  1. Hi Shona and thank you for joining me sharing an oldie today. I love your card, it's one of my favourite colours, SC images are just the best too. Great idea with the ric rac too, it makes super seaweed.
    It reminds me of my favourite Disney film, The little Mermaid, humming "Under the sea" as I type!
    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

  3. Hi Shona, wonderful card, what a fabulous colour too.
