Chillaxing Under The Sea

Evening Peeps,

I'm running a bit late this evening but have good excuses, lol.  As you all know I spend alot of time on my colouring and I think this image is no exception, plus I just had to visit the NEC today, some little crafty thing was going on there, lol. 

Unfortunately now that the evenings are drawing in this isn't the best photograph and for some reason the light is making the lefthandside of the image a little dulled.  I will re-take in the morning, probably in the rain by the sounds of it out there. UPDATE - New picture added if you were wondering what I was going on about, although it's sunny today and that caused me a problem.  Never happy!

Well, isn't she just sooooooooooooooooo gorgeous.  The stamp by Hannah Lynn is called Kathleen Mermaid and is available right HERE from Crafts and Me.  If you haven't checked out all of the Crafts and Me range of stamps you really don't know what your missing.  Hop on over to the crafts and me blog HERE and also the challenge blog HERE for inspiration from my fellow teamies, and we would love you to join in our challenge which is running until next Wednesday, which is to make a christmas gift.

I have been playing this week as you would have seen in my previous post, some prisma pencils landed on my craft desk, so I had to have a play with them.  I have coloured her mostly with copics and have added the prisma pencils for shading.  I have also added a little sparkle of star dust stickles to her fins and the flowers of course.  I masked the image and stamped the background vines and bubbles with a magnolia stamp and cut it out using my nesties and then layered onto a scalloped nestie.  The little squares are also nesties, I do love my nesties.  The background paper is by Magnolia and the flowers are a combination from wild orchid crafts and prisma.  I have inked the edges of the nesties and the martha stewart punch leaves using a versafine ink pad.
