Mermaid Lantern with Transparent Glitter Vinyl

Hello again fellow craft lovers!  Today I am here to share a beautiful project that was made with Tape Technologies transparent glitter vinyl.  It is absolutely gorgeous stuff, and very easy to cut and apply (even for a klutz like me!)

To show off the transparency at its best, I decided to use a clear glass hurricane lamp as my base.  This one I believe I bought from Walmart, and cost around $4.00.

My theme this month is Mermaids, so I wanted to add fish scales to the bottom of the glass to create a mermaid tail feeling.  I created my own SVG cut file from a free image online.  (You can find it here).  I cut the scales on my Silhouette Cameo, using the Teal transparent glitter.  The scales are fairly tricky to apply, as the glass is curved at the bottom.  I strongly recommend using Application Tape to do this.

Here is the lamp with all the scales applied:

Now for the lady herself!  I found this beautiful mermaid cut file on the Silhouette Design store, and she was perfect to apply on the top half of my lamp.  I feel that she is swimming up to the surface of the ocean!  I cut the mermaid image from Sky Blue transparent glitter.  (Again, use application tape to apply the cut image to your surface).

So here is the finished project!  I added some glass pebbles into the bottom of the lamp, and a battery-operated candle inside.  The transparent glitter vinyl really is stunning, and perfect colours for this project.
