Little fish, Big fish, Swimming in the water......

Anyone who knows PJ Harvey will recognizs that.....any takers?

In other news....Carabelle stamps again!!  Hooray, I hear you say.  And so you should - these are lovely as well.

I made the background using my Distress spritzers onto watercolour card.  I then stamped the circles over the top using distress ink pad.  The mermaid and fish I stamped using staz-on.  The detail of this image is stunning.  The distress crayons are fab for colouring the image, and great to add tone and texture.

This was a strange choice for me - not usually a stamp I'd go for...but I really really like it.  It's really cool.  I made my background using the distress crayons in my art journal.  I wanted the mermaid to sit in the background and be really subtle, so I stamped using my distress ink.  I also wanted her to be on both sides, so I stamped her onto tissue paper, which I then glued onto my page using decoupage glue. 

The fish was a cool background, made from all the inks, and then dried.  I stamped and embossed my fishy, and cut it out.  I did add some extra elements in - to break up the colours

Finally, a sentiment.  Finishes it off.

Oh...I forgot to share this one.  I created the background with the distress crayons, and just overstamped using the paint daubers.  It's ready to become something!

"Come back here, give me my daughter." Did you know that song is now 22 years old - can't believe it, actually I refuse to believe it, yes denial that's the better option!

These are both fab, I particularly love how you have made the Mermaid look as if she really could be underwater, it's very ethereal - I think that's the right word!

Only two Carabelle stamps in my collection so far but as I've mentioned before I've decided I need them all -heehee! Just waiting for my Brusho set to arrive so I can go to town with the stamps and colour!

Creative Blessings
