Mother Love

Hello...

I've had time to play today ... I saw the  gorgeous colour challenge at
Just Us Girls


I love these colours and though I wasn't sure what I'd end up with I started by making a background using Goosebumps on white CS and sponging inks on top .... It looked like the sea to me ... And here's how it ended up...


I used a plain wooden tag for the base - covered it with paper then sponged over it to blend in with my goosebumps background ... I found all sorts of things to add ... bits from old potpourri... beads and sequins and I used inks to colour my shell and the scraps of muslin


I suddenly imagined dolphins swimming along ... Of course I didn't have any dolphins ... so I thought I'd try making them with Sculpey clay ... Ok, I know they aren't perfect ... but I was having fun ... baking them, painting them, adding mod podge dimensional and finally some little eyes

Simon Says Stamp Blog has a summer challenge ... Not sure if this counts but I'm entering there too
And my friend Chriss told me about the Touch of Nature Challenge at the Mixed Media Card Challenge




I have a lot of clearing up to do and my hands are a funny shade of green ... but it was worth it.

I hope you are having a brilliant day

Till soon
