With Love

The glorious summer continues...
Though it's a little better here today with a breeze. Yesterday it was stifling hot and it just zaps my energy.
So today I have a cooling card to share... I'm entering this one at 
Just Us Girls where it's trend week 


Another watercolour background


For texture I dry embossed the BG using the coral die. The mermaid was also watercoloured and splattered with gold and then covered in Mod Podge dimensional - You can see that better here


Sometimes I like to cut up my die cuts and I've done that with the mermaid and the criss cross  


I'd love to be splashing around with that mermaid ... The good thing about this summer is that we have been able to eat dinner every evening outdoors... It's been many years since we were able to do that and enjoy the garden.

I hope you enjoy your day whatever you are doing 

Till soon

Yes the gardens have sure been used a lot more this year. Great splashing and splattering on your fabulous card ...The mermaid sure is having lots of fun. Great use of the coral die to dry emboss the background and then to cut up some of the die cuts...Wonderful card Ros x.

Oooo I needed the coolness of this card too. It's super hot here although we did get a bit of a break today with some rain. Love the texture on your mermaid tail. :-)

Oh, so very pretty, Ros! Love the mermaid tail splattered with gold! Wonderful background, too! How nice to enjoy the outdoors with your lovely garden! We hope to enjoy our deck once the weather cools down by the middle of the week.

WOW...this is absolutely GORGEOUS Ros!! Your water colored background with the embossed coral is SOOOO pretty and that mermaid tail is FABULOUS!! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! And so glad you're able to enjoy your gardens this Summer...been too hot here to even sit on our deck in the evening and the air conditioner runs all night...good grief! I'm not ready for Winter but sure would like it to be a little less hot and humid!! Enjoy your week!! :0)

Your love of all things beachy is very apparent in your watery creations, Ros, and this one is a real beauty! That mermaid's tail is curved out in just the right places, and your splashy watercolor background gives the appearance she's churning up the water. Nice that you're able to dine in your own garden. We're heading out on another trip this week, so we'll be dining out in all kinds of interesting places!

The colors and texture on your card are amazing, Ros. The watercolor background is perfect with your mermaid. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

What a beautiful card. Love this!
Yes, I saw Yana's new craft room a while ago, I was going to buy the Ikea peg board after I saw it, and then decided I should paint our master bedroom before I go into that project, but now, everything has to stop because we are moving to the new house next month. : )
Maybe I'll get that peg board for my new craft room!

Glad you're enjoying your garden, Ros. I'll be so glad when the cooler temps get here. Another creative, beautiful card! Love the dry embossing with the coral--so neat! Sending hugs & love, Greta

Another beauty Ros, love that splashing mermaid and the colors are amazing!! Lucky you to be able to eat outside, we can't even enjoy our outdoors as the bugs are ferocious!! It's hard to even take the dog out without being eaten alive lol....I look so forward to summer then can't even enjoy the yard...that's life I guess!!

Barbara said...

I didn't realize your summer has been about as hot as the one in Sweden... I was in fact splashing around like your mermaid almost every day! Your card leaves me wonderfully refreshed!
