Wow - thank goodness the weekend is over! Lots of fun but busy busy! My day at Art in the Park yesterday (an annual village festival) went off very well and I received beautiful comments and compliments about my work. Had lots of girls stamping and getting enthusiastic for learning more - gotta love that!! The sun shone all afternoon for us - it was beautiful.
Well, with some quiet time I had to myself this afternoon I was able to get a challenge card done. Over at Magnolia Down Under the challenge this week is 'Under the Sea' so of course I just had to use my mermaid Tilda and the gorgeous rainbow fish (they hadn't even seen ink yet!).
I cut a nesties circle out and glued the fish down in place. I used a SU! seaweed stamp along the bottom then I covered the whole circle with glossy accents to give a clear water effect. It took a while to dry but I love the end result. I coloured Tilda with my Tombow markers, trimmed her then popped her up in the corner. I used Fantasy Film to matt the nesties circle which adds lots of shimmer and sparkle! I also added some angelina fibers behind Tilda for yet more sparkle!
The starfish is an Alota stamp. Cuttlebug embossing folders and clear dewdrops add the finishing touches to the card. Here's a close-up of the glossy accents over the fish.
I hope you like it! Thanks for your visit today and taking time to come by! I'm off to catch up on some commenting!
