Hello fellow crafters. Today's offering was inspired by the Simon says stamp Monday challenge as the theme was monochrome.
I used Bee Crafty stamps and stamped in cobalt blue archival. I masked with Pebeo drawing gum. Then I added tumbled glass, salty ocean, mermaid lagoon and blueprint sketch to my glass mat, spritzed with water and put the card face down on it to pick the colour.
Once dry I sprinkled some water and lifted some of the colour off kitchen roll. I stamped one of the border stamps around the edges. I sprinkled some gilding paste on background and once dry I added gilding flakes to it.
It was time to rub off the gum I then added clear wink of stella to apron, head piece and shoes and stamped and clear embossed the sentiment. Matted on navy blue and voila'.
I know that the recipient loved it, what do you say? Theresa xx.
