Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Summer of Colour 5 : Week 1

Not having been very crafty of late, but really wanting to join in the fun over at Kristin's again this year, I thought a little ATC incorporating the 3 colours of two blues and one green would do the trick.

I was so taken by Jan's mermaid, I'd thought I'd like to do a mermaid ATC but having no such stamps, I just had to go with mermaid type hair!

I used 3 Distress inks, Salty Ocean (a must!), Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. Three Liquid Pearls Royal Blue, Juniper and Ivy Green. Plus some Patina Stickles. I stamped with Black Archival.

If I can manage an ATC each week that will be more crafting than I have done in months.

I remember a few years ago when we fought to be the first in line for the link up. Now both of us are way back in the pack. I sure like what you made, though. I really liked your thought process and of course, all those lovely products, none of which I own! I am truly impressed with the mermaid's hair!

Very pretty, BJ. Gorgeous colours, and I love the water spattered effect, and the liquid pearls look like bubbles! Fabulous.
