A little mishap

Hey sweet friends.

I was so proud finally getting on top of my cardmaking for the weekend and the beginning of next week. Exited as i was, i just had to share my cards and happiness with my hubby....which thanked me by spilling his coffee on my pile of cards...I was REALLY NOT a happy camper at that time. Lucky for my hubby i`m not of a holding a grudge kinda gal, but `boy did he get his fair share of yelling. I allmost could see his ears fluttering, lol. Can you imagine sitting in the sofa just chillin and suddenly 2 days of work is ruined? If you have seen the Tinkerbell animated films were she is glowing red in anger....well there you have me, hahaha. I`m laughing at it now as i have had some time to calm down. I also managed to salvage the image on my Crafts and Me card since it luckely was at the bottom of the pile. I also had a card finished for WhoopsiDaisy but this was on top of my pile and is totally ruined, buhu!!!

Well is my new card.

I have chosen a nautical theme to make it go with the image. I`m so glad i managed to salvage the image course it has a lot of details, and it took me quite a while to colour it in. But i`m quite satisfied with the end result. It actually might look better than my first card so maybe it wasn`t so bad to have an accident, lol. The image is called Fisherman`s catch and you can find it right here. It is designed by the talented Hannah Lynn.

These are the ProMarkers i used for the image:

Her hair:
Shale, Burgundy, Crimson, Lipstick red

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan, and Pastel pink for her cheeks.

His hair:
Walnut, Terracotta, Honeycomb

Shale, Cocoa, Burnt sienna, Tan, Ice grey #1,2 and 3, Silver metallic, Umber, Cinnamon, Khaki, Pastel beige.

Other colours used:
Cool grey #2,4 and 5, Black, Marine, Turqoise, Peach, Sky blue, Cool aqua, French navy, Indigo blue, Aegan and distress ink Broken china for the sky.

The paper is from Websters Pages, Yacht Club collection. I took advantage of a megasale at Websters a few weeks ago and ordered goodies worth of $100 for the neat amount of $25. Ooohhh what a fab pile of goodies i received. Lots of papers, trims, florals and chipboardstickers and so on. This paper was amongst the lot.

These different styles of seashells are digis i ordered from Make it Crafty. The fishing net is actually cheesecloth which i coloured with distress inks and ripped a bit apart just to make it look like a well used fishingnet.

Challenges i`m entering:

2 Sisters - Challenge #55 Friends
Challenge up your life - Challenge #51 Something for a man
Card makin` mamas - Challenge #28 Going digi
