Hello Crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a fun card featuring the new Crafty Meraki Love Potion stamp set with one of the mermaids from the Mertini on the rocks stamp set.
Do you want to know how I managed to make this mermaid get into the bottle?
To start, I cut a square from masking paper, the size of the label on the Love potion bottle and adhered it on my cardstock right where the image will be stamped. I'm doing this to be able to stamp the whole image without that label.
I then stamped the Love potion image and removed the masking paper. I also stamped the sentiment from the same set.
Next, I masked the inside bottom of the bottle with tape and stamped the mermaid. As you will notice, the mermaid is slightly too big to fit in the height of the bottle. My trick is to cut her tail and stamp it upside down, behind her, like she bent it.
I also stamped the mermaid on masking paper, fussy cut the image and adhered it to my front panel. I cleaned my stamp and positioned it upside down having the tail go behind her hand and peek below her hair.
I stamped the image and removed the masking tape and paper. I colored the images with copic markers. To finish, I added a few highlights with a white gel pen.
Hope you liked that nice way to stretch the use of your stamps to fit your needs. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
