..... Always be a mermaid!
Well here I am with an offering that I have made for the current Try It On Tuesday Challenge of "Feathered Friends".
Now, I have a huuuuuge love of Cornwall so I went down the road of thinking of feathered friends? - seagulls! Well, they may well not be everybody's friends, I'll give you that - but they are to a mermaid!!!!
So here I have developed a lovely, coastal scene by using the free stamps that came with Creative Stamping magazine.
How useful are these - they are excellent!
So I built up my scene by firstly stamping the mermaid, then stamped the waves along with the seagulls and masked them all off with drawing gum.
I then applied some gesso to the sky and dried it off. Once dry, I could apply (from the top of the page downwards) some adirondack ink with a clarity brush for the sky, then came down with the sea.
When I was happy, the drawing gum was rubbed away and the images coloured with diluted distress inks and then I finished the mermaids tail with a Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen.
There, you can see the shine from the beautiful clear overlay pen.
I finished by stamping the sentiment and adding the boat for them all to look out at, some birds in the sky and applying some colour around those posts that the birds are standing on.
Mat and layered.
I would like to enter this in to the Try It On Tuesday challenge of "Feathered Friends":-
Hope you've enjoyed your visit today, nice to see you!
