The Little Mermaid

It’s Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion this week.An easy one I hope you agree.We also have FOUR fabulous sponsors too – Fanyella,Wags ‘n Whiskers,The Artistic Stamper and Letraset!!Pop along to be in for the chance of winning some wonderful prizes.Don’t forget to check out the DT and GDT’s beautiful work while you’re there. 

I was lucky enough to get to play with Fayella’s Mermaid!I had so much fun colouring this with Promarkers and a touch of Sakura Stardust pens,altho’ it doesn’t show up too well. I also sprayed the image with Crafter’s Companion Spray and Shine as this was quite a large area to cover.After cutting the papers I gave them a generous covering of Spray and Sparkle in Silver.I used a border punch along the bottom of the paper and card and offset it for a different look I used a  length of this sparkly trim as I thought it looked like seaweed.I attached the bow and pins using Pinflair Glue Gel.The paper and pins I found on offer at Colemans Craft Warehouse and tho’ they’re not made by the same company the colours tone pretty well together.I like these pins as they have a silicone cap on the end.Not sure if you’re supposed to remove them when you use them but these are definitely staying on!I can’t help it but every time I see any kind of Mermaid the song ‘Under the Sea’ pops into my head!
