Here is my water creation for the midway post:









I had fun creating this card. The image is Brrr-ubbles from Scribbles Designs and I absolutely love him! I did a bit of decoupage on him. I popped the mask, his beak and bow tie, the snorkel, his feet and the tube. Then for a second layer I popped the mask, the top of his beak, the face on the tube and the snorkel. I used a My Favorite Things die cut to cut the background dots layer. I also dry embossed the blue paper with swirls... although you can't really see that one very well LOL and the yellow with the bubbles. I used Sizzix dies for the splats and the bubbles. I chalked the embossed swirls that you can't see and I also chalked the bubbles and splats to get some dimension added to it. I then to my clear UTEE and covered all of the bubbles and splats. There are some random drops around the card as well. I filled up the mask with Diamond Glaze to add that nice clear shine to make it really look like a mask. The image is colored with my Copic Markers. The inside was cut with another My Favorite Things die and embossed with the bubbles. You can see the added chalk around that one. And then I added the extra bubbles and splat covered in UTEE to the inside. The bubbles and splats are popped as well. And to finish it off I added the yellow ribbon. That's it! I have no idea where the patterned papers are from.. they have been in my stash for a long long time LOL And the cardstock is all from my scraps. Be sure to check out the rest of the team.. They are all so talented!

Copic:
  • Black: C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Tie: R14, R35, R46, R59
  • Feet and Beak: YR02, YR07, YR09
  • Green: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Yellow: Y11, Y15, Y19

Planetsusie said...

Oh Susan - the look on his face is sooooo funny! Reminds me almost of the look on my hubsters face when he went snorkelling in the Maldives and looked towards his right just in time to see a shark swimming along side him! Fortunately it was a reef shark and was obviously well fed and not interested! I just love this card and it really matches our theme of Summertime Fun and I am still giggling!

Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar challenge this month, lots of luck to you!
