The lovely Ruth from Crafting While the Baby Naps has recently been making cards featuring lots of sweet mermaids and that got me thinking about making a mermaid stencil....
Here is what I came up with:
I inked a panel in blue distress inks and then inked over the panel with my Messy Dots stencil in the same colours. Then I inked through my pearl seeking mermaid silhouette with black ink before embossing over the top with clear holographic embossing powder to add some shimmer. I simply stamped an old sentiment from Hero Arts along the edge of the panel. I shall link my card up at Simon's Monday Challenge which is to use a stencil.
I inked through my sitting mermaid in distress oxides before using the mask and inking round her with the messy dots. Whilst the mask was in place I drew in the detail around her arms with a white paint pen.
I hope you like these designs. The stencils are available in my Folksy store:
