A Piece of Me


The theme for the challenge at Dilly Beans is to create a project based on you.   I really enjoyed putting this together including my favourite things.  I am heavily involved in swimming so I went with an aquatic theme.  I included lots of "bubbles" on my card, some waves and a mermaid.  My favourite two colours are yellow and orange and my favourite flower is the carnation.  I only had blue and pink carnations so I decided to use the pink one and add some yellow to it to give it a variegated effect (I love variegated flowers anyway so this is another element of me). 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

I have used a paper from Sugar and Spice Studio for the background.  The wave is a Memory Box die which I cut from yellow cardstock and then embossed with an embossing folder.  The image is from Dilly Beans and has been coloured with copic markers.  I also added some Stickles - Star Dust to the swimwear.  The pink carnation comes from The Paper Temptress.  I added some yellow to the carnation by dabbing Distress Stain - Mustard Seed onto a craft sheet and then dipping the flower into the stain.
