Make it Crafty Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome to the
MAKE IT CRAFTY
"Under the Sea"
blog hop

You should have arrived here from my teamie DEBBIE


in fact here is a list of all the girls participating in the hop:

Elaine - special guest - http://quixoticcards.com/blog/


Now we have a real treat for you all and some fabulous news

Not only does Zoe have a really superb new "Under the Sea" themed digital release but they are by our new illustrator, Marina 
 Seriously you have got to check out these images!!

....and I'll let you into a little secret, I have seen a sneeky peek of some of the digi's Marina has created for a future release, oh boy you are going to love them.

OK enough waffle, you've come to see the artwork right!


..........and here it is in close up, just look at that adorable seahorse!!


I actually chose to make up my own scene merging images using Photoshop Elements, but if you do not want to do that Zoe has created some fantastic pre made scenes -
go take a look, I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

and those of you that frequent my blog on a regular basis will know that I tend to use a lot of Copics..................but brace yourself!!

(got a little carried away)

.........I promise to share hints and tips regarding colouring sand, sea, mermaid tails etc at a later date........so keep your eye out for that!

Now, a blog hop would not be the same without prizes
3 are up for grabs for those who leave a comment on the Store Blog post (so don't forget)
 Whole Collection
 Collection of Elements
Collection of pre-made scenes

but don't dally as the hop finishes on Sunday 6th May and Zoe will announce the winners on Monday

Talking of ZOE, that is where you need to head now, hope you have had fun and see you again soon!
