Happy coincidence

It doesnt happen very often but this is one of those cards that came together with a series of coincidences.

To make the money up on an order last week I bought a Caribbean Sea ink pad and when it arrived I had to try it out. I happened to have a stampinup wheel to hand and didn't even look to see which one it was... so bit of versamark, some glossy card and a brayer later I had a sea themed bit of card.

Then I happened to be blog hopping and found it's summer theme on a Spoon Full of Sugar so put the card to oneside while I hunted for a suitable stamp, time and a bit of inspiration.

Then my summer tilda club arrived today and what pops out but a tilda dipping her toes in water!! Just right for a sketch on Sketch & Stash.

Mounted on SU Taken With Teal cs and some matt silver pearl. An ek success photo corner punch and a couple of charms which I used meat scissors to snip off the hole bits. Ribbon from an old Brenda Pinnick TSV.

Tilda's stamped with memento on to papertrey inc cardstock coloured in

skin: ivory & blush promarkers.

Clothes, bg10, bg15 & y11 copics

Hair e35, e47 both tipped onto e31

Ring, b00, b02, yg11, yg03

shadow w1, w3

Normally I wouldnt scrub in as much colour on the hair because of bleed but must admit there was next to nothing on the pti cardstock. If I'd added in as many layers with laser paper I'd have had an huge mess.
