Tiny Townies Mermaid


I have enjoyed a couple of Saturdays up at Robertson recently at Mel’s Camp Papercraft. Last month my sis came with me and we played with my Distress oxide Inks. She loved them so much she bought some of her own! My last post was the 1st of 3 Distress oxide backgrounds that we tried…..


Today’s is the second ……

I have sponged some inks onto white card then used some shimmer spray to spritz all over a wave stencil and then pressed the wet side of the stencil down onto the card. The Distress Oxide ink reacts with the water and a shimmer impression of the stencil is left. (You can use ordinary water if you don’t want the shimmer look.) I loved this effect and will be trying it again for sure!

Once I had created this background I knew I had to use my new mermaid stamp set to finish off the card. I had lots of fun colouring these images and was really happy with the finished card.
