Mermaids....

Oh my where does the time go to can anyone tell me what happens to the days as they seem to wiz by while I'm not looking.......or is it just an age thing!!!!!!!! lol.

I have made another ATC for the Wicked Wednesday challenge #17 which ends today!! Now when I saw the theme Mermaids I knew I had just the stamp.....as I've said many times I cannot draw...well I searched on and off all weekend where oh where was it......... now I know my crafty room is a tad on the untidy side....rofl.....basically it is a mess but I know where everything is or thought I did and my stamps are my little treasures and I keep them altogether so couldn't understand why this stamp had gone missing, well I had given up when in a light bulb moment I remembered I had loaned it to a friend with some other things and maybe just maybe I hadn't put it back in its place.......who me!!!!!.....never......yep I had left it in the box she had returned my things..........such joy......so  I stamped and painted before I went to Doctors this morning to have blood test and finished assembling it  when I got back. 


Main background is distress ink swooshed onto Manila card, Mermaid was stamped in grey Memento Ink and painted with Distress Inks  wild honey, dried marigold, spun sugar, tumbled glass, broken china, Mermaids tail was painted with a mix of broken china and cosmic shimmer paints, shells and hair band were also cosmic shimmer...it does shimmer in rl...honest!  Lastly I added a real shell from my large collection of beachcombing stash. Stamp is one I have had for years and years and there is no name on the block, I cut the images  out and arranged on my background.
So glad I managed to play again this week even though it's last minuet again!
