sea you soon, with video

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: based on a book, I based mine on the Hans Christian Anderson classic, the little mermaid.

I used the Lawn Fawn set Mermaid for you and I stamped it with My Favorite things hybrid black ink onto Schut watercolor paper.
I made a mask of the sitting mermaid with Inkadinkado masking paper.
I used a Spellbinders scalloped circle die to  make a window in a cardpanel and stamped the sentiment on the panel too.

To watercolor my scene I used Distress inks and Winsor & Newton Iridescerent medium for a glorious shine.
The medium  makes the Distress inks a little streaky, but I think that works well with the see background really, adds depth and interest.

I didn't really go for the Disney mermaid, but she turned out kind of like that anyway, I chose the colors mainly to contrast with the blue background.

I accidentally colored her tummy blue as well, tried to wash it out with clean water, but ended up giving here a purple belt ;-).
I realised too late it was a two piece suit ;-).

Mounted the cardpanel with foamtape and adhered the scene onto the foamtape, then applied tape runner to adhere it to the cardbase.

  1. Wat een super schattige kaart, de zeemeermin en zeemeerman (heet de mannelijke variant eigenlijk wel zo?) zijn echt geweldig. Ja de kleine zeemeermin is een fantastisch sprookje. Bedankt voor het meedoen met Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra
