Mermaids & Pearls

The Stampendous DT is hopping this week showing off the fun Wee Scapes products along with our Stampendous stamps.

I decided to create a seascape using a giant shell:

The shell received a coat of Adirondack Pearl Paint and touches of metallic distress stains.  I created my pearl from STAETDLER Fimo Clay.  I gave it a coat of metallic stains as well.  I created a sea bed by smearing tacky glue along the bottom and sprinkled Wee Scapes Foliage Cluster along the bottom. I also glued the grass into the background to give the effect of sea weed.  The mermaid was stamped using Memento and colored with Copics. The shells were heat embossed and coated with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. I stamped several seahorses which were colored and sprinkled with gold glitter. The whole desk was covered in glitter when I was finished. :)

Products; Stampendous Mermaid , Wee Scapes grass, green foliage cluster, Stampendous Glitter, Aged Gold Embossing Enamel,  Copics, Memento Black Ink

Hop along and leave comments for an opportunity to win prizes (USA only):


Have a wonderful Thursday!
