Hello! Wow what a busy week we’re having, we’re overwhelmed by all the love for our NEW stamps, so thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered so far. Jane Tyrrell is here to inspire you today with the very first card created with our Mythical Mermaid stamps…
A Mermaid’s Tail…
It’s not a typo in my title, but very apt if you read on. It is a very exciting one for me as I can reveal my very first sample made with June release of Visible Image stamps. There are 9 amazing new sets including sentiments, something for everyone.
I love mermaids and so does my sweet 5 year old granddaughter Daisy. She and are often say that we would like to be mermaids!
I love the seaside, and there is nothing quite like gazing out to sea. This is a photo from one of our Rhodes trips…
I often sit on a rock on the beach and just lose myself in thought… and yes I would love to see a mermaid! No luck so far but I will keep you posted on that one!
In the awesome June release is none other than a mermaid set called ‘Mythical Mermaid’, and I knew that my first sample to make just had to be with her.
I decided that I wanted to make up an underwater story to go with the fab sentiment.
I got out my alcohol inks, as these make perfect underwater backgrounds. I used glossy card stock, dripped on the inks and then added more with a felt.
Once dry I die cut a scalloped circle out of one.
I stamped and coloured Miss Mermaid with Zig watercolour markers and cut her out
I stamped just her tail onto acetate coloured with alcohol inks, you will see why later on.
I stamped and coloured the gorgeous dolphin and shells and cut some out.
