Altered Mini Playing Card - week 20

Hi there!

This week I'm very much in love with a green and light blue combo! I wanted this little card to be full of texture and shimmer. I used a gauze, glitter pastes by Glitzcraft, stamping with a script stamp (Prima), some sequin stars in combination with green Dylusions and the blue and green Cosmic Shimmer iridescent watercolour paints. I used a tiny bit of the Walnut Distress ink to sponge the edges. I added a tiny bit of doodling around the edges too and wrote 'Live' within in (Live and let live sort of thought...). Somehow this card reminds me of an underwater world I'd like to loose myself in :)
I do miss diving so much! So far I can say that the best diving and the most beautiful underwater world is in the stunning Bahamas! It's to die for! I'm sharing a photo of me diving below... Look how gorgeous and clear that water is...this picture was taken with an underwater camera during our dive in about 15 - 20m deep water. It's as clear as up there! I have some others on an external drive which I don't have to hand right now so you don't get to see the yellow tale snappers and the gorgeous huge parrot fish that we got to feed, but you get a picture of me instead... I'm smiling here, btw :)

I hope you like my little altered card. Feel free to comment, I always like to hear from you.
