Make A Splash!

Good morning and welcome to another post from me. I was on my half term holiday last week and although my other half was very poorly I had a very relaxing week off. I spent a lot of time colouring, crafting, playing WoW (World of Warcraft for those who don't know what that is) and sorting out my clothes and shoes in the second bedroom! I also managed to squeeze a fair bit of swimming time in too, which I haven't been able to do for a couple of weeks for various reasons.

Anyway....this is one card I made using some stamps I coloured up for the 30 day colouring challenge, which I managed 18 days of this time! I used my new Distress Oxide inks for the sea on this one and sprayed them lightly with water to activate the ink (or whatever you call it). Although the effect is subtle, I really liked it. Definitely going to be buying more of these and learn more about what I can do with them!

And my bubbles were made with my new Nuvo Glitter Drops - I now know why everyone raves about these! These are fabulous and the dots stayed in perfect bubble shapes too! Much better than other glitter glues I have tried!
