Today I have a card inspired by the sea, summer, ice cream… ok, there isn’t any ice cream, but it just fits the theme and I love ice cream, I just have to choose the healthy option… which is usually homemade.
This is a NS (No Stamping) card. I’ve just purchased some of these dies and I had to use them :). For the background I started with a piece of watercolor paper where I smooched Distress inks using a homemade stencil, made with the Hero Arts Triangle Background and acetate. Then die cut a piece of watercolour paper that I had previously inked using the same HA die and trimmed both sides by hand. Glued this piece to the background and foam mounted three orange fish coated with CWS. Die cut the sentiment and also coated with CWS. To finish off the card I added some transparent micro beads and bubbles. They look like droplets, but do you know what they really are? Protectors for drawers and doors! They are sticky back… and very inexpensive… and come in different sizes… I feel so smart right now :D.
I’m submitting this card to three challenges:
The Heart Desires Challenge #1 – This is a brand new challenge! Just check out the inspiration piece for this month… swoon! I used the three elements provided in my card – a luscious color palette, sea creatures and geometric shapes.
