Fairy Ink FB Challenge- Mermaids

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I'm here with a new card for a new Faery Ink
for our new
For this challenge I used Mermaid on the Rocks

I made a candle using this pretty Digital Stamp and a lot of shells from the beach near my house. 

I used Blue Peacock Skittles from So Suzy Stamps to look like Beach Glass and shells from the beach. Got some white netted Ribbon from my stash, as I thought it looked like the shells were caught in it. 

Here's a close up of the image, which I colored with SN Markers:
Finished with some Peacock Green Liquid Pearls for her necklace and Bracelet. 

  1. I taped tissue paper onto Cardstock- ensure to tape the tissue to the BACK of the card stock so it's folded over the edges. This ensures its stays tight and will run thru the printer smoothly. 
  2. I printed the image and colored it with SN Markers while it's still ATTACHED to the cardstock. This ensures that you don't tear the tissue as you color it. Just be careful and use flicking or subtle motions...I went over colors with the violet and teal by layering the colors versus trying to blend it on the tissue paper. 
  3. Once it's colored, I cut around the image and placed it on the candle where I wanted it. Wrapped it with wax paper and heated with my embossing gun. Just be sure to heat evenly by sweeping back and forth versus heating the same spot as you want to heat enough to stick the wax from the wax paper onto the tissue paper but not melt the candle underneath. You'll know it's attached to the candle,  as your image will come thru the wax paper clearer. ;o)
  4. That's it- Easy Peasy- and now you decorate and embellish as desired.

Hope you enter our fun challenge this month!
