MWLW New Release: Mermaids at Sea!

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I'm here to share a candle I made for 
http://mywhimsicallittleworld.blogspot.ca/


This week's New Digital Release is all about the Mermaids!:Friendship, All is Calm and Love

I used Love this week- Just love the mermaids, they are all unique and so GORGEOUS!

I started with aqua ribbon around the base of the candle and then used some Shells I found at the ocean by my house (cleaned of course...lol); the tiny ones are from Michael's. Used aqua Skittles as I thought it looked like beach glass. The netted ribbon is from Walmart...as soon as I saw it, I was like "Ooooooo that looks like netting!" so I twisted it up and around the candle and attached seashells and skittles to look like it was caught in the netting. 

Here's a close-up of my colored image with SN Markers:

Here's a side view of the netting with it's catch of the day! And yes, I have burnt fingertips from attaching those lil' guys with a glue gun! Note to self: Find tweezers that will hold awkward shells before going near a HOT glue gun again...LOL!:

and here's the back of the candle:


How did I do this you ask? 
  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 onto the tissue paper 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, you decorate and embellish as desired.

Bella Bubbles...

Good morning crafty friends!

It's my turn to host over at 
http://faeryinkdesigns.blogspot.ca/

and for today, I used Bella Bubble Fae

I've been super excited to create with this image as it's so whimsical and cute! Love the bubbles and the lil' dragon!
I used CS from American Crafts. Instead of DP, I went for different circle shapes to reflect the bubbles in the image. I used different sizes of my Nesting Circles from Lifestyle Crafts and EK Tools Corner Punch. Finished with some Wink of Stella on the lilac circles only for added shimmer. 

I colored this cutie with SN markers and Prismacolor pencils. 



I sure hope I've inspired you today- Don't forget we still have a PASTELS FB Challenge going on here!
 
Happy Craftin'!
