Hi there, today I would like to share some mermaid magic! I love mermaids so when I saw this gorgeous creature, the 2 x 3 Viva Las VegaStamps Mermaid, I knew I had to make something special.


I started out by using 4 different alcohol inks in various blues and putting them onto the Kromecote glossy cardstock.

When I was satisfied with how the alcohol inks looked I then took some Mermaid Glimmer Glam and painted it over the alcohol inks.

The next step was to stamp the mermaid stamp onto some white cardstock.

I then used watercolor pencils to color her in and then cut her out carefully

The next step was to take some gold glitter and put some on some white paper. I then put glue onto the kromecote cardstock where I wanted the glitter to be and pressed it into the glitter

so that it looked something like this

I then glued some rhinestones and pearls into the glitter, printed off a quote on my printer and glued that on, stapled some lace pom pom trim on and voila, here is the magical mermaid

Plate 1349 or
2 x 3 Mermaid Stamp
