Annette’s Entry for Magnolia Down Under Challenge #17

Whilst playing with my sister this weekend, we decided to enter the latest Magnolia Down Under Challenge. This time Kellie decided to go with a sketch for the theme. Here it is.


I went with Tilda the Mermaid and tried using a Blender Pen with inks to colour her. I think I have met the sketch challenge reasonably well, but couldn’t add a strip across the bottom of the card as in the sketch. See what you think of my effort.

 Tilda Mermaid Mustard

  1. Annette, stunning card. You’ve done a great job in colouring this adorable mermaid Tilda. Love the way the many different soft colours for her tail go well together. I’m assuming you stamped your own DP’s–well done here.



I would love to hear what you think of my blog. Thank you for your comments.
