My very first blog post, using SBS Roxie mermaid

Well hello there!

This is my very first blog so please excuse any faults. I literally have no idea what im doing, so any help or advice would be appreciated.

So here is an 8x8 twisted easel card I made for the Simply Betty Stamps July Challenge, Good versus Evil. I chose to use Roxie the good mermaid, because she's beautiful with her flowing hair, and her cute little seahorse pal! I love to use SBS stamps because they're so fun, and easy to work with.

I used Promarkers to colour the image, and enhanced the bubbles by using some rangers glossy accents (which I LOVE) I matted and layered my image onto some dcwv card that complimented the colours I'd used in the image itself.

I made the shell from Hunkydory adorable scorable card and also the wave card is from Hunkydory. The paper used on the bottom of the card is from the First Edition Paper pad "New Bloom", and for added embellishment I used some corrugated paper strips from The Range to make the bow along the bottom; some yellow sticky back pearls; some purple papermania sticky back star gems; some purple organza ribbon; some gold rub ons for the sentiment and a little glittery foam fish (also from The Range)

Finally to give the card some movement I added a strip of acetate with a Hunkydory seahorse dangling from it.

Cute eh!
