Grenouille Greetings said...

Such a beautiful image and so beautifully coloured, Coops! I love how you have given some texture to this pretty mermaid's tail with the slightly dotty look and aqua tones are my fave colours, your card, with it's lovely papers and pretty layout is a real winner with me. Love the liquid pearls in her hair too and the pointilistic background. I'm so pleased to learn that you are feeling better too. It sounds like you had a horrid bug! Hugs, Lesley

Sarah said...

Hi Nic, been browsing and catching up on your blog. So glad to see you are feeling more like yourself. Sounds like you had a bit of a nasty bug there!

More beautiful cards - gorgeous colouring as always. To be honest I can't see that this image is squiffy - but then most of my stuff on my cards are at a slant, I really am sooo bad at straight lines!!

Hope you continue to improve and are feeling 100% better very soon.

Sarah
