Alicia Bel's Smug Little Mermaid

Good evening everyone! I thought I would make another card for the team challenge over at Alicia's Bel's Facebook group today using some of the clay pieces I have moulded. I bought some coloured air dry clay from Amazon in one of those lightning deals, not really expecting it to be very good as it was fairly cheap, but it's not bad at all and dried really well and kept the shape and imprint of the moulds too.

I used the adorable Smug Little Mermaid for this card and made a cute scene with the clay pieces after cutting her and the crab out and using my distress oxide inks for my a background. I think I need more of these to be honest as 2 colours don't really give enough depth!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Demera Spring Breeze Fae

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink today! I have used the gorgeous Demera Spring Breeze Fae, which was the One Day Fae Giveaway for last month. If you didn't manage to get her for free, you will be able to buy her here in the store shortly.

I used the light lines version of her, which I always find more tricky to colour, but I love the effect of the no lines colouring! I went with nice, bright Spring colours and added a few flowers and butterfly dies, The butterfly in her hair was a much needed cover up as my new Wink of Stella pen blobbed on her hair! Grrr! Butterflies are a fab way to cover up those kind of mistakes!
