It's Saturday and that means time for a new project reveal! Last weeks cards, while very nice and heartfelt, lacked a certain flair. (which was extremely hard for me to do) I hope I can remedy that situation with this weeks masterpiece. I have a confession. I love faeries, pixies, witches and mermaids. So when I saw that SD (ScrappyDew) had a mermaid file I knew this was my cuppa tea! First here is the link to the mermaid file
http://www.scrappydew.com/store/animals/sea_theme.php Aren't these just adorable. So now on to the card. I knew I wanted to make an Easel Card. It would just fit how I wanted the card to work out. BUT, with any plan, once I start working, the card takes on a life of its own. (sometimes screaming at me) I wanted an ocean background. Do you think in all my stash I had a pretty ocean background? Noooo. So I just got out my watercolors and some watercolor paper and made my own.
I have always thought that a mermaids tail would be very beautiful and sparkle. So I cut the tail with Zenith Zing and went in search of glitter. Naw glitter isn't what I want, I want sequins. (looks like a fishes scales) I had a package of sequins that I bought a while back. So with needle nose tweezers in hand, I glued each one on.
Now this is where being a big fan of SD is very helpful. I had purchased Under the Sea Palz 2 http://www.scrappydew.com/store/animals/sea_theme.php and being a very happy vault member I have the Sea Palz 2009 package also. So now I start picking and choosing what I want to use. The animals are so small. No bigger than an inchie! (1x1) The sea kelp was 5 inches and then I found in my stash the letters and low and behold they were bubbles. (see how some cards just come together) So here is this weeks masterpiece!
(take a closer look to see all the details)
Now for the next few weeks, I will be sharing elements for a Halloween project that will be revealed in all it's glory after labor day. So it might not make sense right when I post but it's a doozie!
Thanks for taking the time out of your day to have a cuppa with me. I wish you bright blessings and see ya next Saturday!!! Jana
