Blue, Green and.... I choose turquoise!

Hi everyone! I hope you're getting a bit of sun now, we've started to, and it's making me feel so much happier! What a difference some rays make! It always gives me a creative boost too, so I feel a bit happier with this weeks card than some of my more recent cards.

This week the theme at CIWC is Green, Blue, and one other colour of your choice. I had my mermaid Tilda in mind and was struggling between purple and turquoise but then remembered I had some fab turquoise flowers so had to add turquoise as my colour of choice! Here's the result, I hope you like it!

The papers are a mix of My Minds Eye, DCWV and Prima. There's also some coredinations gemstone on the scalloped circle!
There are clear stones and pearls dotted here and there too, and blue tulle under the flowers.

And here's the fab flowers! I still need some work on my arrangements of flowers. The tulips and the open flowers are from Magnolia, the rose buds and cherry blossoms are WOC and those fabby daisies are Kort and Godt from Joanna Sheen's website (lush!). I spritzed them all with cosmic shimmer pearls watered into a glimmer mist, and then added some stardust stickles for extra bling!

The sentiment is Magnolia, and it is heat embossed with aura sea breeze embossing powder.

As always, Tilda is coloured with DIs. Her tail is painted over with cosmic shimmer pearls into a paste, and then stardust stickles. The bubbles are raised with 3D gloss

I think that's everything! I'll pop back later with any challenges she fits into! But until then, Bye for now! And as always if you have time to say hi and leave a comment, I am always grateful, and will make sure I pop over to your blog and say hi!

Hugs and crafting merriment!
