I am back this week with my Guest Designer project for AALL & Create. Even though we are nearer to Christmas than summer I really wanted to use the fabulous newly released OctoMermaid Stamp Set #236 by Olga Heldwein to create and underwater scene.
After colouring her I fussy cut her out and set her to one side.
I turned my attention to the tag base. I cut the tag from mount board and brayered some turquoise and green paint onto the base before brayering a thin coat of gesso to tone it down. Using the Lotza Dotz Stencil #39 (by Autour de Mwa for AALL & Create) and Texture Paste I applied this to the tag. I love the way the paint has seeped through the Texture Paste in many places.
Some greenery was added and a few other pieces, including some sparkly stars (which sadly don't show up very well) from my stash to create an underwater scene.
I used the sentiment from the same stamp set and added this to my tag to finish it off. As you can see I also covered her modesty! LOL.
Here is another closeup of Olga's beautiful underwater creature.
If you would like to buy this stamp and/or stencil or any other AALL & Create products, you can find a full list of worldwide stockists HERE.
