MAY BLOG HOP FOR SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM MEMBERS.

My offering for this one is pretty simple,
using one of the MER-BABES from SMEARED INK.
I recycled an old 5inch squre box frame....
 into a little underwater scene....
 I used 4 toned shades of acrylic paint,
promarkers to colour the merbabe, that I decoupaged to give dimension.
 I used real dried seaweed, shells, moss and sand plus some
netting, string and plastic twiggy thing!
I stamped over my painted background with silver ink on a large crackle stamp
to look like water ripples.

Please visit everyone on the hop list.... these ladies are all so talented and amazingly inspiring.
Thanks for stopping by BDx
