Smushallaum. that's what this beautiful mermaid is called. Don't you love them these stamps from the Stampotique march 2011 release? Please go to the Stampotique website to see them all.

To make this background I applied different colors of Adirondack paintdaubers to a craftsheet. I sprayed them with a little water and perfect pearls. Then I put my cardstock in the paint, turned it a 180 degrees and dried it with my heattool. You can repeat this process as often as you want until you're satisfied with your background (prevent colors to get muddy don't use the same paint too often and dry in between layers of paint).

For this card I used these stamps:
Daisy daisy
World all her own

Have fun stamping!
