Dreaming Mermaid

Challenge 95
Anything Goes with an optional TWIST .... The Abyss
{or in the ocean, under the sea}

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

I just love this image and it is a wee while since I last used it, this challenge is the perfect chance to use it again.  The background was coloured with Distress Oxides and then I used a stencil and silver ink to add some more texture.  The image was coloured with Polychromos and then SN glitter clear pen on the scales to add the sheen.  To finish off I used some underwater themed stamps.

  • image - Mermaid 3 by IKEsART
  • colouring medium - Distress Oxides, SN markers and Glitter Pens and Polychromos crayons
  • other items - stencil; silver, blue and green stamp pads; clear shells, coral, fish and sentiment
I am entering this project into the following challenges:-
