Steampunk Jellyfish posted by Claire

Good morning, Claire here with a bookmark made using the fabulous jellyfish stamp from Steampunk Funky Fish. When I first saw this stamp, the tentacles reminded me of a tassel so I put my thinking cap on and came up with the idea of a book mark.


The background was from my pile of inky papers, made with distress inks in Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn and sprized with mica spray. I covered the wet inky background with cling film and left to dry, unfortunately you can't see the mica in the photos.

I stamped the Jellyfish with Memento Tuxedo Blank ink and added some stencilling with sequin waste and Chipped Sapphire distress ink. 


To add a bit more interest I had a rummage in my craft room and found some Fantasy Film so I dusted of my iron and created the 'umbrellas' of both Jellyfish and attached them with some glue.

To finish off I inked around the edge with more Chipped Sapphire and of course I had to add a tassel.

I hope you're having fun with these new stamps, they are a lovely change from Christmas crafting

  5. I just saw the image & hadn't read your post when I thought how brilliantly the tassel echoes those jellyfish tentacles so when I read what you'd written I had to really chuckle. I love the luminescence created by the Fantasy Film jellyfish umbrellas.The background is very evocative of rising bubbles.

  6. Love the bright colours and the glitter; looks like they came right out of a fantasy book!
