Mermaid using Lavinia Stamps

I have had the BEST time today getting inky and indulging myself for a few hours with my trusty Lavinia stamps. Last night I created a few distress oxide backgrounds and I decided this one needed a pretty mermaid so I set to work this afternoon and this little scene soon emerged. 

My new stamping platform proved really useful for arranging my layout and meant I was able to accurately over stamp my mermaids tail in versamark and then emboss with some wow glitter powders. It really brought her to life!

The details were coloured with Twinkling H20's and nuvo drops added for dimension and I gave the orbs a glassy look with Glossy Accents.

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
