Mermaid Tag Frank Garcia Design Team



Hey Gang! I'm adoring Julie Nutting's stamps and what better way to use the Sea Sally Mermaid Stamp than with Frank Garcia's French Riviera collection. I created an oversized tag using Rangers Giant Tag it measures about 5 x 10 inches. I covered the background of the tag in Respirer l'air de Lamer pattern paper from the French Riviera collection. I then used the opposite side to create a large rosette. I showed you how I do these in a video of another tag I created - you can find it here.

The edges of the tag have been stamped with Primas stitch stamp. I used plain seam binding and dyed it myself with Glistening Waves Bloom Spray. Beneath the mermaid is Journees DeReves et Aventures torn and just slightly peeking out to add that hint of blue. I used this pattern paper to create the mermaid. I used the stamp on some book pages as my base.

I then used several small circle punches to create a paper mosaic. This mosaic creates scales on her body and fins. I also used tiny circle punches to create the texture and dimension on her hair.

I used book pages to create my own fringe. If you guys have been following me you know this my new "thing." The Petite Rosette trim was sprayed with the Glistening Waves as well. I cut up the gold Rocquencourt Doily Lace and tucked it in.  Little bits of seed beads and sequins were added for interest on her fins and top.

I used some Dusty Attic sprayed with Prima Sprays along with cheesecloth to give this a little sea side touch.

I'm involved in a swap at the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance community and this month is a doll tag swap. This beauty goes to my partner Niki Hackler- Maughan. Hope she likes it. :)
