Under the water under the sea, catching fishes for my tea!!!

Hello from coffee headquarters,
Hope I find you all well today? Jolly well hope so:D
Today I have finished a card started a few weeks ago when I received this Tilda stamp, I stamped, coloured and layered her and then..........................couldn't decide what to do with her, amazing! I had really wanted this stamp and there she sat all finished and dying to be arranged but I've put that right with the help of Crafty Individuals new book 6 'The Seaside'

As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be a big inspiration. I have used the front cover behind on the card base because I hate to waste anything:)

The greeting stamp is from Stampin Up, their Very Punny set, which I purchased on eBay as a retired used set. I've used Diamond Glaze over  Twinkling H20's, I've always loved the way it glistens underneath, neat:)

Just would like to add, I have received some great comments and I would like to Thank you all
It's so nice to get positive feedback from people who share my addiction :) 

p.s. I have acquired a new nickname from OH, guess what it is?

BLOG HEAD, he! he! he!

You work is beautiful. What perfect colouring, there is variation even in the skin tone of Tilda. Lovely. I have a lot to learn. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving some kind words for me. I really appreciate it.

Sorry, I'm an anti Tilda peep, but this is absolutely beautifully made. Love the colours and this particular image isn't too scary - about the only one I've seen which isn't, lol. Great card all round.
