Some of you will remember this happy jellyfish which I made when ‘Playing with Polyfilla‘ at the beginning of June. I decided that I couldn’t just sit with this making my desk look pretty (held by one of those GREAT BIG PEGS), so after some thought, I decided today to make a card with it.
I made another ‘clam shell’ from a die cut, (a little like the one on the ‘I’d Swim Oceans for You‘ tag I made a couple of weeks ago), only this time I made the colours inside more muted mother of pearl with softer colours, and edged the ‘shell’ in gold, so that it ‘spoke’ to the card which the Jellyfish was on.
All the shells I’ve used on this card (see one of the bigger photos to spot them all) are all real shells (not plastic or resin), but some of them I hand decorated to add a little colour and interest to them …
This is really easy to do, simply using the very. fine. nib. Sharpies. Because these particular shells are so teeny tiny I had to use the magnifying glass which is on an arm of my craft desk lamp, as I found it really difficult to see the places where my pen had to go next – I was staring so hard I was going ‘boss eyed’, so the magnifying glass was very much appreciated!
I won’t bore you to tears telling you all the elements of this card because you can see them yourself without me yammering on. But … if there’s anything you want to know about, or ask where I got something from, or who’s make of something or other I used … anything. Any thing at all… you just ask away. I’m more than happy to share information.
Before signing off, I just want to say hello to a couple of new followers who have joined our crew here at The Cobweborium Emporium this past week. I won’t name you, but you are very much welcome here. Please feel free to wander around and leave comments where-ever you wish to. I know how it can be a bit daunting to make that first post, but even if you just want to say hello, I promise I’ll chat back to you.
Well, that’s me cooked to a turn! So …What have you been up to this past week? Have you made anything that I’ve missed .. if so please do give me a poke in a comment. I’ve noticed that the Reader can sometimes miss things so I try to regularly visit blogs I follow just in case I’ve missed a post. Been somewhere fabulous? Bought something naughty which will make us all drool? Or just stayed happily where you are and enjoyed the sunshine/breeze/winter/summer/park/dog/ … or anything else? I’m all ears … so do share! 🙂
It’s Wednesday today, and I call that ‘Tipping Day’ – because it tips the beginning of the week towards the end. May the rest of your week be truly lovely. May you be given something to smile about, something which makes you happy and .. may you make at least one wonderful memory every day for the rest of the week.
Take care out there … and … have a blessed rest of your day my friends.
Sending love, from me here to you there, ~
