oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Hi there! Finally back with a little post from MI. Still struggling with my depression and just can't wait for the fall when things normally get easier for me. A few months more...

So we have a new challenge for you over at Passion for Promarkers. This week's theme is set to "oh I do like to be beside the seaside". That means we want to see creations connected to the sea, water and beaches. I have shown a card earlier with one of the new Bildmålarna images when Mimo and Mimosa are dressed like sailors and here comes a card with little Mimosa. She is coloured with Letraset markers which you also have to use to enter our challenges. I did a use a tiny bit of a grey Prisma pen to tone down the white in the clothes.

The designer papers are also from Bildmålarna and now I have almost used up all of the papers I bought. I don't think that has happend before. And do you know what the best part is? I have not bought anymore to replace them. LoL I have used tons of flowers to decorate the card and some half pearls, you always need that. Some corrugated paper that I white washed just like I did with the first card. There is also a tiny bottle filled with sand from my favourite beach outside Kalmar, a charm, so hemp string representing the rope. The bridy tag is also from the designer papers...

I am affraid I have a bunch more of these cards, they are simular but not totally looking the same. I did a bunch of these as gifts for Philip's teachers who he has now left behind to start school in the fall. I did also make matching picnic baskets for them all, five in total so not strange that the papers are all gone by now, almost... I will show the baskets and the rest of the cards another day. As I don't get much crafting done at the moment, I spread them out a bit. Can always pretend that I am crafting as often as I used too...
