Guest Designer La-La Land Crafts - All wired up

Hi everyone! I'm very lucky to have been invited by La-La Land Crafts to be a guest designer for May on the Friday team and for this week the theme is all wired up. I've made a card using the gorgeous Mermaid Marci  and she's water coloured with Distress Ink Markers: Antique linen, tea dye, vintage photo, walnut stain, barn door, tattered rose, tumbled glass, broken china, faded jeans and black soot and also with Caran d'Ache watercolour crayons: black, golden cadmium yellow

I added faux stitching, a little acrylic paint for sea foam over the water colouring and lots of pearl pen dots. I wired up an embellishment of beads, swarovski crystals, sequins and pearls for my wired element and also added a pearl wire pin. The map paper is by Sandylion and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker.

Have a great weekend :)
