Distress oxide ink, fresco finish paints, Paperartsy

Sea and sand postcard art swap

Another swap to share tonight… again for UK stampers forum.  The postcard has to have a theme of sea and sand so I immediately went to the Creative Stamping magazine stamps that I’ve been using a lot recently.

I started with a panel which I used the crackle glaze from Paperartsy to create the background. I then kept it simple with just the stamped sentiment.  

The mermaid I stamped separately with archival and then coloured her with distress oxides which provided a lovely soft finish.

I mounted the panel on a other card with a distress oxide background. 

Happy crafting!
