I saw this stamp and instantly fell in love with the image. I love everything ethereal and mystical. So she was crying out to me, to be stamped. The stamp is from an American company called La La Land. To be honest with you all, I hadn't heard of the company, but I am already on the lookout for more of their stamps.
I stamped the image onto bleedproof white card, using a black Ink-It-Up dye based ink. The stamped image was really clear. I coloured the image with ProMarkers. I used Cobalt, Arctic and Sky blue for the mermaids tail and her top, For her hair I used Canary, Lemon and Primrose. For her skin I used Soft Peach, Pale Pink and Almond. I tried to use the the technique that Sarah Hurley demonstrated on Create and Craft. It didn't turn out too bad. I then fussy cut the image and coloured the white border with a blue gray FlexMarker. For the card base I used a white stepper card from DoCrafts. I matted it with Silver embossed mirri card. I then layered that with a couple of 6x6 papers from the Beach Babe collection by Fancy Pants. I attached the image to the the card using foam pads. I used blue gems as the air bubbles. I Stamped the sentiment using a blue dye based ink and cut it out with a spellbinders Labels 18 die and I cut the silver mat with the next size up with the same die set.
One down one to go.........
There we have it two cards, two different results using the same stamp.
I hope you enjoy
