Good morning folks, I hope you're having a good weekend so far. Chocolate Baroque have released some fab new stamps again this month, two sets of fragments, these stamps are always so useful and very versatile. The new Rustic Fragments stamps are fab, they will work beautifully with so many of the other stamps and I needed no excuse at all to ink up one of my old favourites, from Seadragon and Seaside Dreams with the lovely bubbly stamp from Rustic Fragments.
I began by using my distress markers to colour directly to the sea bed stamp from Seaside Dreams, I spritzed the stamp with a mist of water and stamped the image. I used a water brush to pull the colour out and add some shading. I inked in the background using distress inks in shades of blue and green and then stamped the mermaid with black archival ink. I stamped the 'bubbles with Brilliance White ink and once that was dry I used my water brush to life some of the ink from some of the bubbles and also from around the mermaid.
I've distressed all the edges and layerd the little scene up on some kraft card adding some wired pearls, a paper flower and a pretty brad from my stash.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card mania: metal Embellishments (wire and brad)
