Mermaid Kisses

Can you tell I love mermaids? I finally bought Stampin-Up’s ‘Ruffled’ embossing folder and had a play. The base card was a shaving cream background on blue gone wrong, that I thought would be okay for this project. I ran a white pigment ink pad across the top of the ruffles to highlight and spritzed lightly with Picket Fence Distress Stain Spray. The stamps on this card are also from Stampin-Up (Magical Mermaid) except for the ship which is from Collections. The moon is a Fiskars hand punch and the fish are ‘Aquarium Fish’ from Poppystamps which I cut out in shrinky, painted in silver, then heatset to shrink.

Ruffled Embossing Folder used over inked background again. I stamped the octopus first.

stamps: Tell Me D13325 by Impression Obsession; Octopus by Rubber Stamp Plantation

dies: Shells D176E by Impression Obsession; Windswept Stems 99663 by Memory Box; Mermaid – I got on ebay, unsure of brand sorry. It was just a blank shape, I drew in her features and little turtle in her hand (which I think was supposed to be a shell, but hey, artistic licence is allowed).
