After staying up until midnight last night to make my lemon marmalade (or lemon curd) I decided today I was just going to relax and make a card. Here is what I came up with:
I made an easel base out of white 220gsm card, and adhered a panel to the front from the same card. I layered a blue fairy paper, which looked like underwater flowers, and butterflies on blue paper and attached these to the base of the card. A sentiment sticker was added to kraft card to make the prop for the card top. I got a Gorjuss mermaid stamp a few weeks ago and decided now was the time to use it. This sort of stamp I would usually colour in with alcohol markers or watercolours, but this time I wanted to try leaving it uncoloured. I stamped the image onto blue, watery paper, which came free with a Simply Homemade magazine. This was then adhered to the easel front and butterfly washi tape layered on the top and bottom of the panel.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
