Delightful Wednesday – April Showers!

Hello there! I’m back again!!

Today it is my turn to post a Wednesday project on the Digital Delights blog and the theme Sandy and I chose for April is April Showers (water related designs).

So for my final April Showers creation I used the gorgeous Mermaid, Seahorse and Starfish that can be bought individually or as part of the fab Under the Sea Set

I do love mermaids and there does seem to be a few of them ‘floating’ (!) around blogland at the mo. I went all blue and green with the colouring to match my background which I made using Spectrum Noir AquaTints on watercolour card.
Images: Mermaid , Seahorse and Starfish
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Jewel Flowers & Flourishes’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Ovals’ – Tattered Lace ‘Vines’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Watercolour card - Kraft
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils – Spectrum Noir AquaTints
Others: Acrylic drops – Liquid pearls

So swim over to the Digital Delights Blog where every day there is something to inspire you and don’t forget to visit the shop and ‘sea’ all of Wendy’s adorable designs!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
