IT'S HERE AGAIN!!


Hello Everyone...

It's here again...Monday morning and hope you all had a great weekend and ready for the new week.

A new MAKE IT MONDAY is ready to start and thanks to all who linked up last week..so many fantastic creations... and congrats to the winners..

This week we are sponsored by Scrappers Delights and I was able to choose an image to play with....so I picked this gorgeous Mermaid..

Nerissa Mermaid 



So lovely to colour...I used my Faber Castell pencils and a blue copic on her tail..



I love my new MB die "Bamboo Shoots"...makes good seaweed.

The tiny rocks were stamped onto kraft then the edges inked a bit..

The beautiful 'Seahorse' was made locally and quite soft..not sure what it's actually made of..when I first saw what she had to offer..I thought they were clay...but they are more like soft rubber...lol..I dont know,but will find out.



The side view...no DP's..just blue cardstock...and tried a new background for the water by using a sea sponge and dabbing all over with ink..added glitter to her body,tail and the flowers in her hair and she was complete..




For my POTW this week...well, I just could not go passed this cutie from #254 Desire


Look at that little face...too cute..and the beautiful flowers Desire makes..thanks for sharing with us Desire..

So off you go to link up your cards and projects...as long as you have used paper somewhere on your work.. you are good to go...


Thanks for stopping by...hope you have a fabulous week...and YAY!! pay week..

Luv CHRISSYxx
