Halloween Mermaid for Fun


Hi, everyone!  Toni here with a super fun way to stretch your stamps.  I've used the decidedly not spooky Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You set to create a Halloween card.  How fun!  Mermaid witch! Trident broom! Fish bats!  Coral trees!  A haunted fish aquarium house that lights up!  Squeee!


Now, I've found the Ranger round ink applicators are a must for this type of background.  I've tried using the brush-style applicators for this level of saturation and could not replicate the smooth transition and depth of color. Consideration in using Chibi lights is also a must.  Now that I've done it a couple of times, it's old hat.

You can see additional pics as well as a behind the scenes tutorial of the inner workings of the card by visiting my site, Frankie Helps Craft.  Happy Halloween!
