Thanks for stopping by!
This is my very first card as a "Cuttlebug Challenge Blog" DT!
The challenge for this week is to make a "shaped" card. I wanted to use the adorable fishes from "Fred She Said's" "Emma The Mermaid and Friends" digi set.
The fish bowl is one of my own digis that I worked up on my computer.
The image is watercolored and popped for that 3D thing I love so well. I used my handy dandy Cuttlebug and embossing folder to create the "swirls" in the pearl blue "water" paper then hit the edges lightly with distressing ink to give it a little depth. I used thick embossing powders to give the bowl a glassy look.
I had a really hard time not sewing on this one! You all know how I love my sewing machine! LOL! I just don't think stitches on a fish bowl would have cut it! ;)
I think this turned out to be a very fun card. I hope you like it!
Before you go check out the cards the other awesome DT girls have done for your viewing pleasure... I hope you will leave me a comment AND go sign up for the 2 blog candy give-aways I have going on right now!
