About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.

Alicia Bel facebook group challenge - 4th card

April challenge on the Alicia Bel facebook group
The theme is animals, real or fantastic or beings that are animals in part, such as mermaids, centaurs, etc.
Also worth any digi where an animal, insect, fish, etc. appears. Even if it's like a pet. Or any digi where the character wears an animal costume. 

We had to make teams of four for the challenge.  I am in the team with Lisa JannawaySusan Bennett and Bonnie Kohane.
We are having fun making cards and chatting to each other.  The team finished the first four cards and guessed the clues correctly.

We decided that we wanted to make some more cards using the lovely Alicia Bel digi stamps so here is my fourth card for the challenge.

I have coloured Alicia Bel stamp Little Mermaid bubles using twinkling H2O watercolour paints for the tail and hair and Copics for the skin and eyes.    I coloured the fish with gel pens but the bright colours don't show up in the scan
The background is coloured with H2O watercolour paints Sea Spray, Bashful Blue and Cool water.

I would also like to add this card to the following:
