Swimming with Mermaids


The Stampendous and May Arts Blog Hop Finale is today. The Stampendous DT has been playing with the wonderful May Arts Ribbon all week. 

My inspiration started from the ultra fun loose-braid wired ribbon from May Arts.
The ribbon is perfect sea weed that my mermaid and sea horse can play hide and seek in.

The background is sprayed with Glimmer Mist (Patina).  After it completely dried I stamped the Stampendous Geo Bubbles using Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I glimmer misted some crepe paper to create the background seaweed.   I added a beautiful sea floor using the Steel Blue Glass Glitter.  The Mermaid and Sea Horse were stamped on white cardstock and colored with my Copics.  I added a hint of glitter in the scales on the mermaid.

Hop along to find all kinds of wonderful inspiration! Don't forget to leave a little love along the way for a chance to win a fabulous prize!
Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Fabulous underwater scene Sue. You are so creative. I am sure I would never have seen seaweed as a use for that ribbon but it's perfect. Love the teeny seahorse too.
