Blue, bows and buttons at Cooking it up with Katie

Good morning, where have the last 2 weeks gone? Its time for another challenge at 
       Cooking it Up with Katie and this week we've got another fab recipe for you AND a lovely sponsor too!

The recipe is an easy one this time around:
Buttons, Bows and Blue.
Our fab sponsor is Fairy Knoll and the DT were lucky enough to be able to choose a digi to work with for the challenge, I chose Marisa the Mermaid for this card:



Marisa is coloured with promarkers, then masked to ink the cloudy background and brayer the sea. I also added some glitter to the wave caps. I cut the 'porthole' from some glitter card on my cricut and added some aqua and blue eyelets. Marisa is matted on some blue ginham paper from my stash. I added some swirly flourishes dotted with baby blue stickles, blue gingham bows and blue buttons to embellish.

I'm entering Marisa in the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers: We are sailing
Stamp Something: Something Digital
My time to Craft: Check it out 
Everybody Art Challenge: Blue and White
Tanda Teaser: All At Sea

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're going to cook something up with us this week
