All roads lead to the ocean

Hello everyone !

Today I have a postcard to share. I used two of my new Stampotique stamps (the mermaid and the birch tree) for this.

I started with model paste through a stencil and after it dried a thin layer of gesso. Next I used Lindy's Stampgang Flat Fabios (sprays without sparkle).
I am totally hooked on this colour combo of greens and blues and I used "Merry go round green" and "Tilt a wheel teal" for this card. I randomly stamped the background with grey Archival Ink and the 'Vintage bill' stamp. 
Next I stamped 'Smushasha' on white card stock and coloured her with a combination of Copic Markers and colour pencils. The seaweed was created by stamping 'Birch tree' several times on vellum and colouring the back of the vellum with a green Copic Marker. I cut all the trees out, cutting some of them apart. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, 'Ocean text' also on vellum and then adhered everything on the card. 

I used the following stamps (all Stampotique):

Thank you so much for stopping by !
