My Favorite Things Camp Create 2017, Day2: remarkable resist, with video

For day 2 I pulled out the Mermazing set from My Favorite Things.
I stamped her on Crafter's Companion Neenah paper and colored her the same as in one of my previous videos, because I just love her purple hair and teal tail.

I used a home made mask/stencil, I  diecut a circle out of some card, which  I then positioned on the cardbase.

For my remarkable resist I used Wow! embossing powders:
Golden Flame 
primary chartreuse
primary luscious lime
hot gossip
earthtone mint

As some of the embossing powders are transparent it's
important to do the embossing first, so you still have the white base underneath.
I used all the kelp, seaweeds, corals and the shoals.
I mixed some of the powders together to get an unique look.

I stamped through the mask, but then positioned some of the kelp outside the circle,  just for a whimsical look.

For the inkblending I used Distress inks:
tumbled glass, peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon (of course)
I applied it with a mini ink blending tool and splattered on some water for the bubbles effect

After filming I added one more shoal of fishes, you can see it's darker as the background was now blue, I felt it needed more fishies ;-)

Stamped the sentiment from the same Mermazing set with Versafine Onyx black ink.

Mounted the mermaid with foamtape and adhered here to the cardbase.
