Make it Colourful {Reflection in water} ~ my water needs a little work!!!!


Hi there! This is a birthday card I have made for my niece. She'll be 7 next week...my where has the time gone??
I have kept it simple as I know she will appreciate the picture (mermaids mad!!) & the colouring rather than a load of embellishments.

I have also made this card to go into Make it Colourful's challenge {Reflections in water}
I'm afraid my water needs a lot of work & I tried to do too much all at once. I wish I'd just stuck to the reflections instead of trying to do ripples...oh well better luck next time ha ha!!

My mermaid is sat on a little scene I have coloured myself with no actual image just a pencil drawing. So I had nothing to guide me except my pencil sketches. Came out quite well considering!!

I don't know if you can see in the pic but I have done her tail reflecting a little orange on the water, the stone reflecting some grey & a little pinky/red for the crab.

If you want to see better pics of reflections check out the Make it Colourful's wonderful design team's makes & don't forget they're celebrating all month because its Make it Crafty's first birthday!!

hugs Helen x x

Buttons Picture Gift

This week Murphy's friend's little sister turned one and I decided I would have a go at a buttons picture as a present for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Very pretty for a very pretty little girly. She's my little smiley buddy when I do the school run. No matter how I feel she makes me smile.
If you would like to order a picture gift please contact me for more details
