Book Lover


Time for a new challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges; the lovely Denise wants to see book pages, an image of a book or a bookmark. I did choose a dictionary page with words that begin with book in Swedish, and to confuse, some stamps from Pink Paislee in English! Please visit our blog to read more about our generous sponsors A Day for Daisies and Make the Day Special.

A Day for Daisies kindly offered the images to the team and I got the fabulous Mermaid in a jar. She's been coloured with Alpha Markers and the water was coloured with Aqua Markers, hehe, what else!
 I added some highlights with a white Uni-Ball pen, some Flower soft for texture and Glossy Accents for a shiny tail. The tiny bubbles were made with Liquid Pearls and the sand got some Distress Stickles for interest.
 Some flower soft were also used to make a shade in the water. And Crackle paint for the book page for a worn look.

Oh, and the lid is painted with diluted Liquid pearls and a brush, it's very easy and gives a nice glimmer IRL.

I'm entering:
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: Girlie
Cute Card Thursday: A Touch of Sparkle
Carfter's Companion: Here Comes Summer

Have a wonderful week full of lovely books!

Warm hugs
Maarit
