This is my second post today, so if you are here for my JustRite post, please scroll down. :)
Today is Crafty Secret's Design Team challenge and linky party.
For today's card I've included a step by step tutorial on how it was made.
I used a lovely image from the Mermaid digital stamp set. I colored it using my Spectrum Noir markers.
I used a lot of German Glass Glitter to emulate the sand.
I added seashells, waves, sequins, and ribbon to finish off the card.
So here is the skinny on how the card was created!
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I took my sponge and bit of brown Memento ink to distress the edges a bit.
I used glossy accents to adhere clear and gold German Glass Glitter to the edges of the stamped image.
I used 2 papers from the Creating with Vintage Patterns digital collection.
I cut the blue and tan papers into waves using an Xacto knife.
I layered the pieces on kraft cardstock after inking each one with brown Memento ink.
I added clear coarse glitter to the blue water, just on the edges for a bit of sparkle. I cut a slightly larger rectangle to matte my image on, but first added more gold German glass glitter to the edges.
I stamped the seashells, gave them a bit of color with my Spectrum Noir markers, coated them with glossy accents, and sprinkled more of the clear coarse glitter on top of it. Once it was dry, I added a bit of gold glitter just to the edges using Queen Anne's Twinkle Glitter Glaze.
And because I didn't have enough glitter, LOL!, I added more to the card I was going to adhere everything to. I attached my image to the sand and waves, and added some gold ribbon vertically.
For my finishing touches, I added a few sequins, and another layer of ribbon.
