Good morning all!
It's Monday, which means we have a new challenge for you over at
Eureka Stamps, where the theme for this week is
Here's my DT inspiration card!
As you can see, I went more for what you can see from the beach!
(I'm sorry about the photo but I just couldn't get this to look straight at all!)
As soon as I saw this gorgeous mermaid, I just had to use her!
(She is Digi 6003 Lg Mermaid.)
I made a shaker card,
The shaker part is a little acetate pocket, with the image placed behind it, inside the card.
(makes her look like she's underwater)
I used an A5 base, which I covered with some patterned vellum from Lidl,
then die cut an aperture in the centre.
I used a slightly bigger die to cut the acetate for the pocket.
I sealed the acetate on 3 sides, filled with lots of little beads & sequins, then
covered with a frame which I had doodled around with my Sakura Stardust pens.
Then stuck to the base.
On the inside I added a pattern paper which matches the veullum,
then added the image! Here's a closer look at her.
I had great fun colouring the image with my promarkers & Sakura Stardust pens.
I love the sparkly effect that the stardust pens give!
I cut her out using the same die as the aperture, inked with some distress ink,
whilst still in the die, then placed her so that she was
visibe through the shaker window.
Can't wait to see what you create for our At The Beach challenge!
