Let's see the inspiration from the team - today we've been creating lots of lovely Mermaid and beachy inspiration for you!...       

Pam - Our challenge this week was Ocean or Mermaid and I've selected the Zodiac Pisces Fish for my Ocean scene. I love how they are elegantly drawn and have been anxious to work with them for a while. I made an underwater cave-like scene then added a glittery matting and a fishy paper from Polkadoodles Mermazing Ocean Craft Paper pack. Instead of a bow, I finished the card front with this unique brad that is a bottle with a heart - perfect for this fishy couple celebrating in the middle of the ocean!

Nunzia: It's too hot to stay at home, so these adorable rabbits of Sail Away with Me are taking a romantic boat rider during sunset. The scene is glued on a background made with some strips of paper taken from Just Lovely - Honeypie printable bundle and squares blended with distress oxide. The sentiment is part of Love Always printable Sentiments big bundle.

Rachael - Hi everyone - Happy Crafturday! I have made a card today using one of my all-time favourite Winnie mermaid digi stamp called octopus kisses. I printed the image and coloured firstly, with alcohol markers for the base colour, but then I used pencils over the top to get deeper shading and more detail/texture. I coloured it in a combination of lilacs and turquoise for an underwater scene that looks like it would be so cute to be part of!


Wendy - Hi everyone! How adorable is Winnie Mermaid Mermazing - Octopus Kisses! She's part of the Winnie Mermaid Mermazing bundle. Winnie is one of my all time favorites, and as a mermaid, she's so much fun! I drew some kelp and coral to give this already fabulous image a simple background, and colored it with my Copic markers.

Irre: Hello! Today I'm sharing an art journal page in my envelope journal. I used the digital stamp May your wishes come true from the Winnie Celebration 1, which I colored with Copics. For the background in my journal, I used modeling paste, cheesecloth, ink sprays, and some punched-out stars. Finally, I added a sentiment from the sparkle unicorn sentiment set.
