Mermaid Frolicks


I saw this ‘bubble effect’ on a card on Pinterest and thought to use it as a background for a mermaid card. The mermaid here is stamped, and cut out. I used a stamping tool, a bit like a Misti tool if you’ve heard of one. Its shaped like a large CD cover and you can place/stick your stamp onto it and keep re-stamping until the image is correct, if needed. After many years of messy stamping, this tool is my favourite now! Here I used three different colours for the mermaid tail. This tool is great for that. The waves are coloured with Distress oxide inks. I used a stencil for the bubbles background, dipped into wet Oxide inks. All unbranded stamps and dies.
