Where does time go? WOW!
At Freshly Brewed Challenges we are trying to keep summer here a little bit longer with a new challenge.
The challenge this week is themed : End of Summer
I have two projects to share with you. I will start with the one I like then move on to the one I Dont like :D
First up is Mermaid Play
I used the following stamps for this card:
This card really just came together this morning. I had the image colored for a while,
but after my disaster of a project that I created for this challenge, I knew I had to create something else.
I pulled her out this morning, looked for a sketch, found one at Crazy 4 Challenges and voila! here she is!
Don't you love that sparkly ocean? I have had that glittery paper in my scrap box for about 6 years and never used it. I was happy to pull it out and cut it out with my MFT die today :)
Next up is the disaster.
I handdrew the bg, then stamped a few extra stamps on it.
I had already had the mermaid stamped, cut and colored in a box just waiting to be used. I should have placed her down before I colored the sea around her. Big oops there. I colored everything but the mermaid and the sky with sharpie markers. The paper on this frame soaked the ink up FAST so I did not keep going over it to try to make it look smooth. It would have just used too much ink. I thought by adding glossy accents over the ENTIRE frame and then sprinkling a light dusting of fine glitter it would make it better. It did, but I still hate it (GRIN).
The poem was found here: and printed off of a word document.
I created the frame with a few layers going inside and layered using pop dots. I first put on the clear acrylic cardstock, then the blue framed poem. This project has potential, and could have been a lot prettier, but I goofed it up too many times :D There was no hope!
Thank you for stopping by.
