Good Morning all, i hope you had a good weekend and had better weather than we do, been lots and lots and lots more rain down here.
So today I am sharing a 3d picture ive made, including a lovely mermaid.
8x10" Box Frame. First i made the background, more details of that below. Then i built up my undersea world with shells and driftwood, mostly collected on Cornish beaches over the years. I added clear glitter sparkle to my laser cut mermaid, die cut foliage as seaweed. I think the mermaid has told the fish on the right a secret and the other fish are rushing to find out first what the gossip is😊
Close up of the mermaid
a little seahorse is hiding among the shells and seaweed.
The golden octopus is looking after the message in the bottle.
I used green alcohol ink to colour the clear mini bottle green, a scrap of rolled up and inked paper to act as the letter in the bottle. You can see the effect of the sea salt in the background on this one
Background - i first used brushos and pixie powders onto white card, i then sprinkled on chunky sea salt and allowed to dry naturally. I then stamped lots of different shells in different colour distress inks, using a circle mask (home made) i stamped through with dictionary stamp and grey ink, using the same circle mask i inked through with perfect medium and heat embossed with green pearl embossing powder, I stamped the little circle border (kinda electic) in dark grey and went over the circles with crackle accents, all of these to give the effect of bubbles.
Showing more of the detail in the background, you can see some of the stamping, shells and the script bubbles better.
