Splash it on


I so love Simon Says Challenges…this week’s Monday Challenge is called “Splash it on” and it calls for incorporating water into the project. “It can be an image of water, or water coloring, or splashing water onto your creation.”

It sounded like fun and…since I am on some sort of quirky kick of making shaker cards I decided to use a Mermaid stamp that I have had for eons and do not remember who it is from.  I used Simon says hybrid inks, Scuba and Mint Candy, to color some acetate. My first tries were a bit too dark so on the third try I just went over lightly. I fussy cut the mermaid and colored her in using Copics, sandwiched everything in and violà. The background is white so that the water currents show up a bit more.

It’s the little things that count under the sea!

I cut some starfish from an old Cuttlebug die, colored them and put Glossy Accents on top. I decided to put the wording of “It’s the little things that count” on the bottom to make it look as if it is a treasure chest at the bottom of the sea.

This was the first one….I decided to do a second one with a colored background and clear acetate.

I get the impression she is calling out to the sailors passing by….you, me and the sea……

The glass beads and colored paper are stuff that I have in my stash. The white paper is Neenah Solar White 110lb.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

La sfida di lunedì di Simon Says Stamp di questa settimana è chiamata “Splash it on” e chiede di incorporare l’acqua nel progetto. “Può essere un’immagine di acqua o di colorazione dell’acqua o di spruzzi d’acqua sulla tua creazione”.

Sembrava divertente e … dal momento che mi piace fare i shaker ho deciso di utilizzare un timbro di una sirena che ho avuto per anni e non mi ricordo da chi è. Ho usato Simon Says Stamp inchiostri  ibridi, Scuba e Mint Candy, per colorare foglie di acetate. Le mie prime tentazioni erano un po ‘troppo scure, quindi alla terza prova l’ho sfiorato con il colore. Ho tagliato la sirena e per colorarla ho usato i Copics. Lo sfondo è bianco in modo che le correnti d’acqua si mostrano un po ‘più.

Ho tagliato alcune stelline da un vecchio fustello di Cuttlebug, le ho colorato e messo in in mezzo. Ho deciso di mettere il testo di “Sono le piccole cose che contano” sul fondo per far sembrare come se fosse un tesoro in fondo al mare.

Questo è stato il primo …. Ho deciso di fare un secondo con uno sfondo colorato e acetato chiaro.
