Today I have been stalking my Postie, so that I can open my Lavinia Stamps order of lots of fabulous new stamps and stencils. Fortunately it arrived and I didn't waste any time in making a project using some of the stamps.
In readiness for this delivery, I had created a couple of backgrounds. To be honest, these stamps are large, so a little more restrictive on the placing of the stamp on these tag backgrounds.
The background of this tag is created by blending shades of Distress Oxide Inks. I have used the new Lavinia Stamp called "Althea" as the main feature of the tag, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
I then created the backgroud, (masking the tail of the mermaid) and multi stamping another new Lavinia Stamp called "Sea Tangle" using Versafine Clair "Twilight" a dark blue ink.
I stamped the "Mini Sea Urchin" to give the impression that the mermaid is holding it in her hand.
I added highlights and sparkle using a white Signo Pen, a silver glitter Signo Pen and a matt metallic silver pen.
