it’s SUNDAY with TAMIBELLA!

www.stampingbella.com: rubber stamp used: TINY TOWNIE MERMAID SET card by Tamara Potocnik

Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this week’s Sunday post I made a Mermaid card. I’ve been a huge Tiny Townie fan since the beginning of my crafting adventure. I’ve chosen Tiny Townie Mermaid set for this week’s card. I’ve been playing around with slim line dies the last week, so I tried making an underground scene with this set.

First I cut the bases and coloured them with my distress oxides (the sea and the sand). Then I wanted to make light coming down from the top, so I used a sun burst stencil to make sun rays.
I embossed air bubbles directly to the background. I also added a few fish.

Images were stamped using Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300g HP watercoloured paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads.

Distress ink colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: barn door
shell: pumice stone, black soot
fin, flower: seedles preserves, black soot
bikini: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
treasure chest: vintage photo, black soot
coins: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
seagrass: mowed lawn

Images were all fussy cut and glued to the image with 3d tape to make them pop out.
Sentiment is from the Sentiment set called Under the Sea set.

That’s all from me today. Have a lovely Sunday.
Hugs, t.
