Sparkling Jellyfish and a Birdie Wedding

Well our sunny sun returned today Hurrah!  And it was a scorcher!  Too hot for gardening and I only did a bit of crafting as the kitchen was the coolest room in the house.  Though I'm NOT complaining!


This card uses an old oldie from a Stampin Up set 'Fishy Friends'.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and his main body popped up on dimensionals and  then sparkled up with a Spectrum Noir pen.
Background chalked with a Simon Says stencil.  A doodled border and some sequins and bling to finish.  Nice and quick!

Card 2 is a quickie Wedding card.  I've used another oldie stamp, this time from Art Gone Wild.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to their beaks.  I also watercoloured my background and then masked off my birds to add some matching splatters.  Red bling from Taylored Expressions.
I love how this card turned out :)
