Finna comes to play at Creative Inspirations Beach challenge!!

Happy Wednesday everybody,
I hope you all are doing well!!
It's time for a new challenge over at
Creative Inspirations
which is a seasonal theme:
And since I am already quite tardy,
let me just get down to business:

This is Finna the Summer Fairie by the fabulous Mo Manning, she's printed on Neenah cardstock and coloured with my Prismacolor pencils and baby oil, I free-handed the beach-esque background (as if you couldn't tell). I am a little disapointed with my pancake looking sandy shores, so moving right along, don't want to focus on the negatives, I used a white Sakura jelly pen to add highlights to Finnas hair, the wings and waves were Stickled in Diamond.

The papers are Basic Grey, the sentiment is Motivet, flowers are a medley of stash items and treasures that the darling Elise sent me, thank you dear. The scene idea and the wonderful floral lace came from the wonderful Sue, she always inspires me when I am in a pickle.

Time for some challenges, me thinks.

Cupcake Craft Challenge Summer Delights

Well, when you start creating your summery creations this week, I hope you will keep our BEACH challenge at Creative Inspirations in mind :)
Take Care, wear sunblock,
