Faery Ink Facebook Contest - Mermaids

I read a quote on Pinterest the other day "Always be yourself unless you can be a mermaid.  Then always be a mermaid." Mermaids are one of my favourite (fantasy) characters (95% of the seas is yet to be explored, so maybe we just haven't discovered mermaids yet!) so I was really pleased when I found out the theme for this month's Faery Ink Facebook Contest was Mermaids!

I have used Mermaid on the Rocks, don't forget to pop over to the blog to see my teamies creations using the other Mermaid images available.

  • Backing sheets from Under the Sea CD-rom by Debbi Moore, top sheet distressed with Hougie distress tool
  • Noor! Design Seashore and Under the Sea dies
  • Anna Marie Designs Kraft card and Creata Mirri board
  • Teasure chest cut from Under the Sea design sheet with added gems from my stash
  • White Gesso acrylic paint

Mermaid on the Rocks is coloured using the following Graph It markers;

Skin; 4120.4125, 4150, 4155, 4135, Lips; 5130, Eyes; 7119, Tail; 7210, 7220 7240, Hair; 9201, 9203, 9205, Rock; 1230.  I have added a tiny gem to her ear. 

Don't forget to join in the contest in the Facebook group.
