Inspirational Photo - Simon Says Stamp DT Card & Miss Tilda!

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I am officially on annual leave from work so I've been a busy girl catching up with friends, pottering in the garden & doing various chores that I wanted to get done at home, & when that's all done I am going to spend some much needed quality time in my pretty craft room :)
It's Wednesday which means -

Simon Says Stamp
   exclusive goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
As you can see today's DT card is totally different to my usual style of card but I think I like it!

I have used Simon's super cute "Best Fishes" stamp & die set & as I enjoyed using Lindy's Stamp Gang's Mermaid Magicals powdered pigment stains last week I've used them again this week & coloured the little fish with them.
I too this photo at an angle to capture the lovely shimmer from the Magicals & I also flicked a few splats from my waterbrush to create a really quick & simple background.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp

I am sharing a second card today which is a sweet Tilda card. I've used an older Tilda on this card along with various embellishments from my stash.
The gorgeous papers are by Maya Designs, the sentiment is by Cats Life Press, the stickpin is one that I have created & the cute teddy bear charm, the flowers were from my stash & of course Simon's pretty Leanna butterfly has made another appearance.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R30, hair - E47, E44, E42,  dress - BV01, BV00, BV000 /  C3, C1, C00, bear - E43, E41, E40 / R21 / C3, C1, C00, boots W4, W2, W00.

This little card is now available in my Etsy shop :)

That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by
