Finally the light bulb went off in my head and I figured out what to do with the globe that this cute mercreature is gently holding as it fondly remembers events of the past. This is the third of the rubberstamps I won as part of a 3-count grab bag prize for participating in a Sweet Pea Stampers challenge.
This photo shows a close-up of my Copic-filled Mercreature rubberstamped image. On the stamped image, the globe that this mercreature is holding is left empty with just a few spots of drawn highlight areas. It's a fun space that you can fill with whatever your heart desires. I reduced and flipped the mercreature image then covered it with a self-adhesive epoxy circle from Creative Imaginations.
I used Bazzill for my card and added a layer of Hot Off the Press' Paper Pizazz Masculine sarapapers. My oval stamped image is edged by deckle edged scissors. I've added QuicKutz corners, a Spellbinders Floral Flourish, McGill fern punches and paper flowers. A sentiment from Hampton Art's Studio G Clear Stamps and a Stampin' Up! Circle of Friendship set complete my flower and sentiment cluster.
Here's a view of my completed card front showing my version of Lisa Victoria's Mercreature . . .
