Clearly Besotted Sneak Peeks Day 4 !
Today, I’ve used two sets to make 2 very different cards. The first is using ‘Make A Splash’ It’s a brilliantly fun set. I envisaged this little dolphin playing and leaping out of the water. On closer inspection of the set (which you’ll see in full tomorrow), there is a ripple you can stamp in the water- but in just cutting out the outer ring, it created the perfect ‘hoop’ for little dolphin to sail through. You can see the dimension of the elements in that photo- courtesy of some little acetate squares. It lifts them right out of the card and I’ve also used acetate strips to extend the card beyond the usual and add in the clouds. It’s a clever little trick that stops the card looking cluttered but is slightly tricky fitting the card into an envelope 😉 I dug out some old micro beads (remember those?!) and used them to accentuate the waves which were created with distress ink. Stamp some fun drops of water and you’re done!
Onto the next set- the stunning ‘Beautiful Friend’.
I added some white gel pen detailing and some stripes to bring the colour scheme together.Hasn’t this release been amazing? It’s not finished yet though- do go and visit the other girl’s blogs and you’ll be wowed!
I will be back tomorrow on Release Day with another project for you, so do check back tomorrow.
Thank you for all your kind comments and hello to all of the lovely new visitors!
See you tomorrow then!
