It's a Sweet Pea Saturday

How is everyone today??? I have 2 Sweet Pea cards to share with you today. For this first one I used and Elaine Cox image called Pirate Treasure Mermaid sheet # 5 /Plate#46 at Sweet Pea Stamps. The DP is a mat pad from me&my Big ideas called Journey. I added some Wild Orchid Crafts roses and Prima little roses. I also took some ses shell beads and and ran some wire through them to make a sea shell embellishment. The image was colored with copics, used some liquid pearls for the pearls and some glittery sakura pens and added some bling to the corners of the image.

For my 2nd card I used another Elaine Cox image called Playing with Stars also on the same sheet/plate.
I wanted to make her skin light so I colored her with E50 and E51. Her skin is a little darker in person, but I took the pic outside and the sun was so bright.

THe DP is from a DCWV Fall Stack. The sentiment is from a ching chou kuiks Sweet Pea Stamps set. I used my new Martha Stewart border and corner punch( I am still trying to figure out what size to cut my paper to make it come out right) So if anyone knows please tell me so I can quit waisting paper. I added some Wild Orchid Crafts roses and some fiskars tear drop looking embellishments in purple( but in this pic they look black).
Well, I am off to cook dinner hopefully I'll get to go blog visiting later!!! Thanks for stoppping by!!
