Last Neat & Tangled GDT Post


Hello and happy Friday everyone!

I’m sad to sad that this will be my last post as July guest designer over at Neat & Tangled. Even though I’m sad its my last post I am still so happy and honoured to have been asked to do it. It has been a absolute pleasure working with these beautiful stamps, so thank you so much for having me!

Today I thought I would create out of my (floral) box and create something cute instead…… see I can do it 😉


To start I created a watercolour background. I did this by covereing a whole piece of watercolour card with fresh clean water and then dropped teals and blues tones (Gansai Tambi paints) into the wet card. I added the colours more at the bottom to create a sort of ombre look.


I stamped the mermaid from Mermazing onto some paper using a light grey ink, I did this so I could then colour with Copics and pencils to create a no-line effect. I do love how see looks like this!

I fussy cut here out leaving a thin white border to make her ‘pop’ more from the dark background. Once I had stuck her into place I added a Wink Of Stella to her and some Glossy Accents to her tail.


To finish I added the sentiment from the same set directly onto the watercoloured panel using a bold black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit!

Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog. If your interested, I’m also on Facebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.

Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
