U - Under The Sea

The Alphabet Challenge for the next two weeks is Under the Sea. My piece was made by printing a digi stamp from Crafts and Me onto acetate, then covering the back with alcohol inks. I coloured in the mermaid with mica paint to make it shimmer. Finally I added some beads, shells and glitter. Unfortunately it is difficult to photograph, it looks better in real life!

Had an amazing week this week - I won the blog candy from Crafty Individuals and couldn't believe the package I received, so thank you so much CI!

On a shameless plugging note! Online this weekend on Facebook is Handmade for You UK's Christmas Fair. There are lots of online stalls (including mine!) where you can buy lovely gifts, cards and decorations for christmas. So have a look if you have time- tomorrow from 10am (GMT)
