Under The Sea with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge this week is 

“Under The Sea”

First, let me tell ya’ll every time I hear/read “Under The Sea” The Little 

Mermaid comes to mind. But not just any “Little Mermaid”! My niece had 

an Ariel doll that would sing and she played that thing like there was no 

tomorrow. It’s a good thing I love that kid or that doll would have

 Prize: $20 Gift Certificate

  I’m using a TheEastWind’s Lucy Loo Mermaid

To create the background I applied Distress Ink directly to a stamping block, misted 

with water and applied to paper, moving it around. I learned this “smooshing” technique 

from the Craftsy Class Vibrant Stamping by Laura Bassen, I dried with heat gun, then laid the stencil

down, applied DryDex, with the stencil still down I applied Fairy Dust, removed stencil, dried with heat gun.  Colored the image with COPICS, die cut, layered onto background paper and white cardstock.
