I was lucky enough to win one of the new themeplates from Elusive Images as blog candy this week. It's always fun to win candy, but when it's something you really, really want, well that's just an amazing bonus! I had wanted to order this themeplate but a shopping trip to Craft Barn as well as a phonecall from the bank warning me that my credit card had been "compromised" - no he didn't mean too much craft shopping LOL - so I had to wait for a new card meant that I'd delayed in buying this.
I'm pretty busy doing last minute Father's Day and birthday cards for my Dad (the two days co-incide) but I took a few minutes away from ships and seashore scenes to come up with this card. It follows a lovely sketch from the Paper Sundaes Challenge blog. I've coloured my image with Copics, used Artylicious DP, a Craftwork Cards sentiment and some lace and ribbons from stash. Watch this space, I have plans for the gorgeous, larger images on the themeplate:).
Thank you so much to Glenda and the Graphicus ladies, including Judith who sent my prize at lightning speed, it was a lovely surprise in a fairly bad week:).
