Beautiful Mermaids! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!


This week our challenge is

Stars & / or Stripes!

The design team are featuring

My Favorite Things logo

products on our cards this week.

Today's card features My Favourite Things Stitched Star Peek A Boo Window which I've just discovered is sadly no longer available in store but there are lots of alternatives available here.

 To create my background I took some Canson XL watercolour paper  which I added some simple stripes of different shades of blue watercolour paint using my Altenew Watercolour Pan Set & water to represent the sea. 

Once dry I stamped the bubbles from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Mermaid stamps set in Simon's white pigment ink onto it my background & allowed the ink to dry then added some darker blue watercolour paint to the bubbles. The mermaid, star fish & oyster are all from Simon's Beautiful Mermaids stamp set & have been stamped in Memento & coloured with my copics. The sentiment has been stamped in Simon's Black Pigment ink as I find it gives a crisper result than Memento so is always my chosen ink pad to stamp sentiments in black ink with.

I've attached a double layer of fun foam to the reverse of my image & added a Hero Arts Pearl to the oyster in the shaker window & some Sea Breeze Jewel Drops &  Simply White Crystal Drops to embellish.
