Studio Katia / 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

I am happy to be a part of the May release and 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop for Studio Katia.  Join me and so many others for this celebration!



Mermaid2

These two mermaids were made for each other!  I've paired the darling mermaid image from Mermaid for each Other with the new Halftone Dots Cover.  The panel behind my Halftone Dots is a layer of alcohol ink background I created.  A few gems from Studio Katia to finish!

My second card celebrates a birthday!  I've Copic colored the Kobi Bearing Gifts and layered it onto a panel of impressed black cardstock using the Halftone Dots Cover.
