The Little Mermaid


It’s my turn to host at Digi Sketch Challenge this fortnight and the theme is  Fairy Tale or Fantasy.We have the super A Day For Daisies as our sponsor.

Here’s my sketch :

dsc 25th march

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used the whistful Tiny Mermaid 2 by A Day For Daisies and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I mounted the image on some pretty pearlescent textured card.I die cut different sized circles from a paper pad that was a freebie last Summer from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.The striped one has a piece of tulle overlaid,cut from the same size circle die.I adhered it to the parts that wouldn’t show when all the circles were in place.Three pink pearls were added to the smallest circle.I stamped the sentiment directly on to the base card and dotted the i with another pearl.Well you have to have pearls with mermaids,don’t you? 🙂

Have a monster Birthday!

This week at Craft Your Passion the challenge is Make It Cute!!We have the fabulous 2 Cute Ink  and The Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration, they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Monster Balloon Digital Stamp  by 2 Cute Ink and coloured him with ProMarkers.His balloon has given a coating of Glossy Accents.I’ve layered up various papers from the Kars Vector paper pad.I turn to this pad time and time again for male themed cards.You can just pick out that the one behind the monster is glittered too.I chose some green cardstock to coordinate and a few brads to match.Metal embellishments just seem so right on masculine cards 🙂 The sentiment has been made on my Dymo Labelmaker using a plain bold font this time,then cut into banner shapes.Love this little gadget 😀 This card is for my DH from my youngest son.
