Having just got back from a fantastic week away in Majorca (despite the heatwave!) it's time to get back to the crafting!
I was lucky enough again for my work to be selected for the Ready, Set, Stamp feature in CraftStamper Magazine.
The theme was Deep Blue Sea and this is what I created
I used Distress Oxides on the card and sprayed them with water to merge them into an underwater effect. Once dry I stamped the mermaid by Stampendous stamps in archival ink and the blue circles in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
I used the Jane Davenport Making Faces flesh coloured paint for the body, watercolour paints and gold marker. I added the embossing powder, glitter, beads, artstones and fragments for the under the sea look. The diecuts were cut from watercoloured card before painting and added to the card. And as the sentiment says, Always be yourself, unless you can be a mermaid!
