New sweetpea release - detailed mermaid
There are a lot of new releases going on at sweetpea stamps. One of them is a new plate by Elaine Cox. I've been playing with one of the two images from that plate. Isn't she amazing? The stamp is quite big, about 5" wide. There are so many details to colour and for once I also coloured the background. It took me longer than I thought to colour the whole image, but seeing it done it was worth it. With a stamp like this you don't need many details around it. I wanted it to stand out so I focused on the colouring adding few embellishments.
I didn't follow any specific sketch as I wanted to leave it simple, but I managed to use a recipe challenge from simon says stamp: 3 types of embellishments, 2 patterned papers and 1 image. I'm also entering this card for peartreedesigns as they had a free themed challenge this week.
