Mermaid Dreams

When I was little I loved the story books with the cassette tapes that would 'ping' when you needed to turn the page.  My favourite one was 'The Little Mermaid', the proper story where she dies at the end, not the fluffy Disney version! I don't have it any more unfortunately, but I found a picture of the exact one on Google and someone has even put the recording on YouTube.  That really brought back memories. I love the music they use. 

I love making different things and lately have been making some bookmarks.  So with my love of this story and Aurora Wings' gorgeous image 'Happy Little Mermaid' I thought I would make a mermaid bookmark.   I have used an Ariel quote, as I think it really suits a bookmark.  I'm definitely a dreamer!!  
It's not so easy to see in the photos, but I coloured a bubble background all over. 

Products used:
  • Papermania card
  • Eyelet
  • Twine
  • Shell charm
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Putty, Almond, Holly, Marine, Mint Green, Bright Orange, Pumpkin, Gold, Burnt Orange, Blue Pearl & Powder Blue
  • Wink of Stella - Clear

Gnome Sweet Gnome

I coloured the Faery Ink's 'Birds & Bees Tomte Gnome' live on my Facebook profile a few weeks ago but got sidetracked by life and other crafting, so only just got him onto a card. 
You can check out the video here and feel free to follow me, as I will be doing more live videos. 

I decided to put him on a beehive shaped card as it's been a while since I did a shaped card. I found a shape on Google and inserted twice in Publisher, then flipped one to create my card template. 

Products used:

  • Kraft card
  • Coloured card
  • Spellbinders Blossom die
  • Cuttlebug Leaf die
  • Honeycomb die
  • Petal Lu Daisies
  • ProMarkers - Carmine, Pastel Pink, Baby Pink, Warm Grey 1-5, Powder Blue, China Blue, Cobalt, Berry, Red, Lipstick, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Gold, Forest Green, Lush Green, Bright Orange, Pumpkin, Burnt Orange, Sunflower, Mustard & Caramel

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. TTCRD - AG 12th June
  2. Creative Fingers - #147 AG
