Crafty Sentiments Challenge – Not a Card!

Hello! How are things?

I’m here again with my final GDT post for the CRAFTY SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE BLOG and I would like to thank both Suzette and Celine for inviting me to be part of the team.  I have had a wonderful time working with these adorable images.

So onto our theme this week and it is Not a Card!  We have a fabulous prize on offer for the winner so check out THE BLOG for all the details.

Oh how I do love mermaids and this lovely lady, ISOBEL – PRETTY BUBBLES, is no exception, isn’t she gorgeous! 


So I admit to making the easiest ‘Not a Card’ thing I could think of which was a tag then making it more complicated by creating the background myself.  It’s not like I don’t have enough patterned paper for goodness sake!! 


First I cut a tag from watercolour card then splodged various inks onto it and once dried embossed and sanded it back.  I loved the result and shall be doing it again…an afternoon of looking at green/blue fingers hasn’t even put me off.

Ingredients:
Rubber Stamped Image: ISOBEL – PRETTY BUBBLES  
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Colouring: Faber Castell & Lyra Polychromo pencils
Die-cut Sentiment: Tonic
Background: Watercolour Card - Spectrum Noir ‘Landscape’ AquaTinks - Leonie Pujol ‘Bubble Explosion’ Embossing Folder
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Nesting Tags’ - POLKADOODLES ‘CHERRY BLOSSOM’ & ‘SUPER SPRIGS’ – First Edition ‘Under the Sea’ - Marianne Designs Creatables ‘Seaside’
Others: Tonic Nuvo Drops – Clear Dewdrops – Ribbon- Pearl Medallion

So fish around THE SHOP where you can find all the super gorgeous stamps available and pop to THE BLOG to join in with our challenge and check out all the amazing designs from the DT.  We also have a fabulous FACEBOOK GROUP where you can share your Crafty Sentiments makes and take part in another great challenge.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a great day!

See ya!
