Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today marks issue #5 over @ “The Next Level”. My how time flies when you are having fun! I am already more then half through my DT stint with them. I think I am going to cry!
This week’s challenge is another fabulous sketch.
I did take some artistic liberties with it because of my image of choice. I wanted to use this adorable “Fred She Said” “Mermaid Emma” and she was too large for this sketch unless I cut her out. A rectangle would have covered the whole shell. I turned the circle into a sea shell. The flower is a crab and the button a half pearl. I also reversed the way the way the circle goes through the rectangle. (That was an accident! I guess I am a little DSILXIC hehehe! The designer papers are “Basic Grey” and the colored cardstock is “Stampin’ Up”. The photos don’t always pick it up well but, I used lots of “Shimmerz” and “Stickles” on this card. It is very sparkly! The crab, fish, seaweed and small clam shell are just some of images that come with “Mermaid Emma”. I hand cut the large clam shell then embossed and shimmered it. ****REMEMBER TO CLICK ON ANY PICTURE TO ENLARGE FOR CLOSER DETAIL***
Please go check out the other “The Next Level” DT’s cards, get inspired, break out some pretty papers, and join us in this week’s challenge!
I am also entering this card in a few other challenges. They are: Coulour Create...use pistachio green, aqua, and powder pink. Stamp Something...Embellished Something-use at least 3 embellishments. I used a pearl and 2 kinds of ribbon. The sentamint was stamped. Charisma Cardz...Rubbernecker....anything goes...anything of your choice (easy one! ;) Digatal Tuesday...use scraps of paper and a digi image. The mermaid, crab, fish, and seaweed are digis and I used scraps from another card I made.
