Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Surf's Up

Thanks for stopping by today! It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Surf's Up. I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here my card based on the inspiration photo. The card is created with the new adorable Sea Friends Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh


I just love this underwater scene. I started by cutting a piece of watercolor paper from the card front. I stamped the bubbles in white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used Distress Inks, starting at to bottom with greens and browns and working my ink up the card. Then I misted the paper with water. 


To created the shaker I used the Scallop Circles Dies and cut directly into the card front. Then I adhered clear acetate and foam to form the shaker. I stamped a sentiment from the Sea Friends Stamp Set and dropped in sequins from the new Mermaid Sequins Mix


Here's a closer look at the bottom of the card. The images are colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the Sea Friends Coordinating Dies

Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,
Lenae, SugarGem

I stamped one the girls and one of the boys from the Summer Friends Stamp Set, colored them with Copic Markers, and die cut with the Summer Friends Coordinating Dies. Then I stamped two of the kites from  Fly A Kite Stamp Set, colored them with Copic Markers, and die cut with the Fly A Kite Coordinating Dies.

My second card is a shaker card created with the new Smile Shaker Die. I used distress ink to created the background and then used the die to cut the hole directly into the watercolor paper. I added foam tape to create the shaker then dropping in sequins from the new Mermaid Sequins Mix. I love this pretty mix!

At the bottom of the card I stamped images from the Sea Friends Stamp Set. The dolphin is also from the stamp set and die cut with the Sea Friends Coordinating Dies
