Close To Being a Mermaid
These stamps from Impression Obsession have been hanging out on my studio table far too long… I have been dying to ink them up and create with them!
I stamped the sweet little mermaid with Versafine Onyx Black ink and quickly heat embossed it with clear detail embossing powder. I then proceeded to watercolor her with Distress Inks.
For the background I embossed the waves a few times with Versamark and white embossing powder. I then did a watercolor wash with Mermaid Lagoon and Crushed Olive Distress Inks. I played round with spritzing water, heat setting and soaking up the extra ink on the Ranger Craft Sheet. I love the dimension and layers this gives.
I then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, can we just talk about how fabulous this sentiment is?! I am DEFINITELY a mermaid!
Lastly I finished off the card with a few sequins for some sparkle 🙂
Even though it is the middle of October, this girl is always dreaming of the beach and summer days- this card was a perfect way to make my creative heart happy!

I have to laugh at that sentiment! I am soooo a mermaid by that definition? If only I had the SMALL seashells to go with it!!
Totally “YOU” and totally cute. Of all the mermaids that came out last summer, this was one of the best. Your background is “sea-tastic!”
Yaaaaaaaas queen! This is so fun and clever! Love that inky background, but I’m obsessed with the snarky sentiment.
This is gorgeous, Jen! And so perfect for you! Love the blue/green sea colors 🙂
