This time at Sweet pea stampers the challenge is to use scallops on your creation. I am really enjoying doing inky backgrounds and using the tapestry stamps right now so I have done that again. I would love to give you the names of the inks but they are just some unbranded little square pads that I have had for ages sorry. The main image is Decoupage Ivy mermaid from my store The Crafty Purple Frog I have layered her up with foam pads and added some sakura stardust pens for a bit of sparkle.
The peel offs are all from my stash and the border has been made using the great Martha Stewart doily lace punch you can get from HERE.
