I think all of this Zumba has made me hyper... :) And I have personal training this morning and salsa dancing tonight, so I gotta HURRY to create this post.
It's NO secret that I LOVE love LOVE Paper Smooches! The neighbors can hear me shriek with each new release LOL! While I REALLY wanted to create more cards for this challenge, I just ran out of time. So I started this card. The creative juices just weren't flowing... then I was doing laundry Sunday and it all came together in my head. Does that ever happen to you? Completely blank mind and finally a creative idea pops in there! Happens to me all the time LOL...anyway, back to the challenge and my card!
We needed to use certain colors or a sketch for this challenge. I actually used a color scheme from last week's Colour Q challenge for this (again mojo didn't make the deadline) but I used this sketch as my inspiration.
My 'Way to Go Gill-Friend' Card:
!). I stamped and fussy cut the pelican, that cute little fish and wood pylons and popped them up with dimensional adhesive. The pelican is colored with Copics. I die cut the waves and the scalloped ocean bottom and layered them on my card front. The stars are actually striped canvas stars that I painted over with Gelatos - LOVE THOSE THINGS! After that dried, I painted Iridescent Medium over the top for pearly shine, hole punched them and added bakers twine to dangle them in the water. Of course, Cutie Fish needed some bling so I gave her fins some Star Dust Stickle shine!
