I watercoloured the background and when it had dried I use the template with Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste, I wanted a focus so I left some of the some of the paste free for this - probably too much!!

Gosh this is a huge image and took me ages to colour it!! I don't know what it's called and I can't find it to link up - sorry!!
I've coloured the image with Copic Markers and added the MFT  Flormal Flourish at the top of the page and added one of the Sea Charms Die with Hemptique White Twine. I've added some little seashells along the bottom of the page which doesn't show very well.

Right - I'm back on-line trying to find out why I can't open my washing machine - the message says the 'Child Lock' is engaged - can I unlock it NO and all my sheets and pillow cases are stuck in there.........perhaps I need a Child to help!!!

Our theme this week is a 'Sweet Treats' Color Combination so obviously I use the Simon Says Stamp Card stock Sweet Treats and endeavored to use all of the colours so it is a more colourful used card than I usual create.
I chose a Wild Rose Sutdio which I thought would have the colour suiting the theme. This image is out of stock at the moment but Simon Says Stamp have plenty of fabulous Wild Rose Studio stamps, papers and dies in stock.
As showcasing out own Simon Says Excursive Products I have l used the Cling Rubber Stamp Falling Hearts, Simon Says Die Fresh Daisies Die, Small Folded Banner & Large Holiday Shape Die.
