Mermaid Life

Hello Friends

I got out my Brusho's last night and had a wee play around.  I was feeling a little stressed so I wanted to make a mess and get into my happy place and craft. I made a few cards and this is one of them.  I have wanted to get this stamp out for a long time. So I finally did and I think the Brusho's worked perfecly for the sea scene. I used two colours of Brusho the sea green and turquoise.  I water coloured the mermaid and the dolphin, then went over them with Matallic Gelatos to give that silvery wet water look.

I really love this stamp set from Unity. It is one of the designs from the lovely Phyllis Harris called Depth of Life. I Love her work so much. I have a LOT of her stamps they are just stunning.  This one is so unique too I don't think I have ever seen a dolphin and mermaid stamp.

I hope you love my card as much as I do! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

  1. Your card is lovely! Love your background - you always do a fabulous project!

  2. Such a pretty scene and sentiment, Mandi. So meaningful.

  3. This is WONDERFUL, Mandi!! I adore your underwater look with the Brushos and the free-form painting of the mermaid's hair. Love the silvery sheen you put on your dolphin, too!

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
