MERMAID



For this post I used another of  Bonna Kelly's digital stamps called "Capricorn" from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.  I didn't like the horns on the mermaids head so I removed them and added a Bikini top by just drawing a pencil line across the bust.


I used copics and polychromos pencils to coloured this image.  I used a black gel black to enhance the hair texture and colour.  I used two different stickles glitter glue on the tail and used a glitter pen on the fins - adding a small amount of stickles to the fins to enhanse the sparkle.  I used a gold glitter pen to colour the bikini top.

As the image was bold along with the colouring I didn't think it needed any extra colour so I embossed some white card and used.  I also used a white texture cardstock for the matting.

Embossing folders (Cuttlebug)  1 edge flourish border
                                                       swirl folder
                     Used Mandala board - diamond crafts

Dies used:  Magnolia doily flower die
                     Cuttlebug corner die

Embellishments:  Ribbon, bow, pearls

I really like this image and hope you like what I've done with it.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment. 

Best wishes,

DIGITAL TUESDAY CHALLENGE - SKETCH


Challenge #95 Sketch by Natascha (sponsor: stamp fairy)

For this week's challenge I used a digi stamp from Crafts and Me called "Dusk".  I coloured her with copics and polychromos pencils.  I used a silver calligraphy pen to edge the image.  I added glamour dust to the wings, dress and rabbits.





The backing papers were from Quitoxic Paperie and the plain cardstock was from Crafters Companion.


I used Spellbinders dies to cut the hearts and emboss, a border die and a spellbinder label die for the sentiment.

Embellishments:  clear gem flourishes, pink pearls, clear gems and a pink gem for the centre of the heart.

I have adored using this digi stamp and hope I've inspired you to get out your fairy/angel stamps - both rubber and digi.

Best wishes
