Floaty Dreams by Bev Hilton


Hello everybody. Bev here on the blog today. I can't believe it's Wednesday again already. Where did the last week go? If you know me well, you won't be surprised to see me filling a hole in a great stencil with all things good. So today I am sharing my make using the awesome Marina from the Deep Sea Divas stamp set by Donna Gray. 

Here's what I used... 

Distress Oxide Inks - Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Fossilized Amber
Posca Pen - White
Sakura Stardust Pen - Red and Orange
Polychromo Pencils
Wink of Stella - Clear - Spectrum Noir is a good alternative

Here's what I did...

I began with a piece of 9x9" card and taped my stencil in place. I then decided where I wanted my mermaid and stamped her in place. I did the same with the fish which I stamped three times. I also stamped my images onto masking tape and placed over my images to protect when blending my background.

I blended the Distress inks onto my card to create the sea. Once I was happy with the look I removed the stencil and then carefully removed the masking tape to reveal my images.

I then coloured my images with pencils and then went over Marina with the Wink of Stella to add some soft sparkle. I trimmed down my card a little before taking the Dinky Fossil stencil and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide and blending around my card. I stamped my wording in black ink and the starfishes in Watering Can for a softer look. I felt Marina needed some beads for her necklace so opted for Enamel Accents. I dotted three tiny drops of enamel which finished the look nicely.

I mounted my make onto black card stock and then onto a piece of orange card before mounting onto white card base.

I hope you like it. Enjoy the rest of your week and see you all back here for my weekly Wednesday spot next week.

Much love, 

Bev. xxx
