I've had this mermaid stamp for a while and have wanted to do a page in my journal with her and I finally had the chance today. I stamped her with archival ink and painted her using my Twinkling H2O's I colored her skin with my copic markers. I drew in some sea weed and stamped the sea chest. I colored the rest using water color pencils, distress markers and H2O's. In some cases, like the chest, I had to go back over the outline with a fine black pen. I added the blue bubbles and the green flourishes through the seaweed. The picture doesn't show all of the sparkle from the Twinkling H2O's. Photo's never seem to do colors justice. I am happy with how it turned out and I love this mermaid stamp.....So pretty.
