Egypt Mermaid




Hello everyone... I have another creation for today and this one is for The Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge and Crafty Creations Challenge. The theme for SPSC is a recipe using 4 patterned papers, 2 ribbons, 2 shapes and 1 button. The theme for CCC is "Choose your favorite stamp". I chose this stamp from Ching Chou Kuik's collection called Egypt Mermaid. I just love these images and I colored mine using Adobe Fireworks CS4. Most of my patterned papers were created by me using Adobe Photoshop CS4. My base cardstock is a copper metallic color and my background paper was created by me and then I stamped some leaves on it. I found some Egyptian hieroglyphic paper for my second paper. I used paper from my stash for the third paper and then I created the fourth one and made it similar to my background paper without the leaves. I added two ribbons, two shapes and 1 button. To complete my creation I added some gold stickles glitter glue, turquois pearls, flowers and a button.

Hi Pattie this is totally gorgeous. I love how you have delicately coloured in the image (one of the few I do not have) I love the glittered areas. The backdrop for the image is fantastic. Thanks so much for joining us at Sweet Pea stampers this week Hugs Pascale

WOW! Love it! The glittered areas pop right at you, cool image, great colors, and that hieroglyphic paper adds the finishing touch. Really nice. I love how easy it is to make my own patterned paper with a computer program. It makes it easier for finding one that works for your projects.
Love - your sis - Sandi

Stunning creation Pattie and a wonderful take on our recipe. Wish I had your talent in the colouring shops but reckon I would still be here this time next year, bald and very frustrated.
Thank you for joining us at Sweet Pea Stampers.
