I had a little spendie recently and amongst the haul were some stencils from Funky Fossil. My stencil stash has swelled massively in the last year - like my stamp stash it doesn't mean I shall use them!😂🙈
But I did use this one!
Actually this is the second time I have used it - so my spend was justified (in my mind anyway!)
I stencilled the mermaid over the background first - she comes with a mask too which is really useful - I used the mask and then stencilled the waves using a mix of Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean inks.
I stamped up the scene at the base with a variety of different stamps from Inkylicious, Lavinia and my 'sea themed' stash, and then added a few stamped bubbles in Wilted Violet.
I went back to my stencil and used it to make two more closed oyster shells at the bottom - not sure this worked - but you get the idea!
A tiny drop of Liquid Pearls on the open shell in our mermaid's hand finished the card which I have left without a sentiment for the time being.
