I absolutely love this digital stamp. It is the first digital stamp that I have ever used, but I couldn't resist. Thank you to Simply Betty Stamps for this Steampunk Mermaid.
Simply Steampunk's Monthly Challenge has begun, and the theme is monochromatic (#4). Ouch. My mermaid could use such bold and bright colors, but turning her to the dark side made her more of a punk and just a bit gothic. Luckily, Punk You Girl's theme this week is Halloween (#5) - who wouldn't want to be this mermaid for the holiday! The Crafter's Cafe Challenge is still hosting the Just a bit Out There challenge (#31), and I think both my card and I fit into that category.
The hardest part was making this a monochromatic card, but if I had to choose one family of colors, I went DARK - black, gray, silver. I gave most of the attention to my mermaid's hair. I think she is stunning. To add to her creepy habitat, I cut black waves from the Cricut Cartridge, Life's a Beach. I chalked around everything, and added the black moon and silverly clouds from the Cricut Cartridge, Create a Critter 2. The word Beware came from that same cartridge and was cut in black glitter cardstock.
Thanks to MyCutSearch.com it was easy to find the moon and clouds.
