Hi, I am Ivy and 55, I have 4 children 3 in their 20s and my youngest is 10 and live with my partner in a lovely village in Branston, Lincs. I started this blog only recently and feeling very proud of myself as have not done it before. Well, I found a new passion in my crafting only recently and that is colouring Magnolia stamps, CC designs, My Besties and Whimsy and I am pretty sure the list will go on lol. As I know a lot of you are professionals at it and maybe some of you are not, regardless it would be great if you would like to FOLLOW ME to my Cabin to share, inspire or just for a chat with a lovely brew... that would be fantastic!! Hope to see you soon xx

Addicted to Stamps Guest Designer

Little Mermaid Shadow Box


Good morning all,

Today's post is my Guest Designer project for addicted-to-stamps blogspot. I used a 6"x 6" Scrapiniec chipboard shadow box and My Besties Little Mermaid Girl which I coloured with copics and TH distress markers and cut out by hand. 

I started the background with a piece of lightly scrunched up white tissue paper on a 6"x6" cardstock then sprayed with green and blue Linda's Stamp Gang sprays
And I used TH distress black soot and applied with some water on the centre of the cardstock to create back shadow 

I glued a piece of fishing net cut to size and added the Little Mermaid on top. A shell with a pearl bead in the centre. 

I applied some texture paste here and there then poured some green and blue prills to create texture. I added some sea washed metal trinkets from Noor! Designs, sea weeds diecuts from Marianne Designs, Joy Crafts and mulberry flowers 

More flowers, diecuts and glass beads
