Here is my 1st mixed media postcard. I used the rubberstamp Smushasha by Stampotique.
I used a piece of Tim Holtz's watercolour paper.
I used a bunch of different Distress Inks and then sprayed the entire sheet with water.
I used a diamond stamp and black Staz On.
I used a Simon Says Stamp star stencil and Fired Brick Distress Ink in the middle. I then randomly placed purple and blue stars using Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.
I then sprayed the entire thing with Tattered Angels Glimmer spray in Trunk Bay to give an all over shimmer.
I coloured the mermaid with Prismacolour markers and fussy cut her out. I used a Ranger embossing pen and some gold embossing powder for the bow in her hair.
I added Ranger's holographic embossing powder over her entire body and tail.
Here's an upclose look:
I decided to make her fly by giving her some butterfly wings. The butterfly is an Inkadinkado stamp and I added Stickles in icicles along the edges after colouring and fussy cutting it out.
I used a die for the word believe from My Little Yellow Bicycle. I covered it in Versmark and embossed it in silver. I added a diamond gem for the dot of the i.
I edged around the rest of the sentiment with a silver Gel pen.
