mythical mermaids and magical seadragons

Hi there bloggers!
Thought I would share with you some bookmarks with an underwater theme that I made quite a while ago, none-the-less I still really like some of the effects and adore the seadragon stamp.All stamps are from the now chocolate baroque online company.
Well here is the first a fantastically wonderful seadgragon...........

The background was made using ink smooshed (a technical term!) into a heat proof craft  mat then spritzed, some cosmic shimmer sparkle pigment tapped on and then the card placed on top and gently moved around. The image was pre-stamped and masked off. Once dry, the background of this was overstamped with sea fronds in ink and embossed using a cosmic shimmer lustre powder. The image was coloured using promarkers and glitzed a little using stickles.

Now for the mermaids.............
The background on this and the following was added after image but painted on using a sparkly paint.
For this last coloured mermaid I added crystal lacquer to her tail to give a glossy sheen......

And , finally a sihouetted mermaid offering......these were embossed using a cosmic shimmer embossing powder which looks black but has another shimmery colour when the light hits it, in this case greeny black.

Well I am off to do some crafting now, hope you like these, share the love and leave a comment!
