Under the Sea 2

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!

I had the best day ever yesterday when I traveled down to Kelso in the Scottish borders to do a demonstration for Indigoblu  and their fabulous products.

I left some of my samples with the craft shop and needed to make some more to take with me next weekend, when I travel up to Inverness for another demo 🙂

I made two of these cards last night, both using distress inks and stains, one using mostly Salty Ocean and the other Peacock feathers, I have a picture below of the two cards side by side for comparison.
