Swimming With Wryn

 I am playing with a brand new release from Tiddly Inks, Wryn the Mermaid.
Isn't she so cute! I just had to have her and ink her up!
I computer generated the quote.
Using fonts segoe script and segoe print.
There's a lot happening at Tiddly Inks.

I am also playing in Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge Make Your Own Background
I sponged my background waves and ocean with my handmade templates.

 Want to know how I did my background and sentiment?
I printed out  my image once on cardstock and once on copy paper.
I cut out the image from copy paper, adhered removable tape on back and used it as my mask.
My cardstock is left whole so I can feed it back into the printer to print my sentiment.
 I made two templates from copy paper using plain old scissors.
The top one is for my waves. The bottom one is for the ocean under the waves.
I put them where I wanted and sponged pulling downward from my stencil above and repeated for my layers using Tim Holtz blender and dye ink pad.
I followed this Hero Arts Video: Making Waves Tutorial HERE.
I removed my mask and ran it back through my printer.
Printing the sentiment on top of my sponged background.
