Get it? Splash of color!? giggles
Hello friends! It is time for another Seize the Birthday challenge!! Where I am honored to be the Surprise Guest for May! The "Toppings" for this challenge is COLOR : )
But as always with Seize the Birthday challenges if you are not a "toppings" kind of person Anything ALWAYS! goes!! Just be sure to make your card a birthday card! and come join the fun!!
I don't believe in mermaids but I do believe this colorful card would pale in comparison to the the colorful splendor under the sea! : )
I had a great time creating this card. This is a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil - LOVE this talented artist!! I printed 2 images on white cs (set one aside) and then inked the bottom and left portion of the card base. Next I cut a smaller top layer and cut out my scallop circle circle. I inked my top layer before placing the circle die back in place. Finally I got to the fun part! : ) I got to color this little cutie. I really wanted to show the tiny little beads in her hair so I have included a super close up picture so you can enjoy the wonderful detail Mo put in her drawing. I wanted my mermaid to really make a splash! so I colored and cut out her fin and glued it to her body - only - so that it could "move" : )
This card was actually my first attempt. I cut the card base thinner than a normal A2 card base so my circle could hang off the side. I printed and colored my mermaid on the card base before laying the circle over the top - popped up with foam. Then I did the same thing as I described above - coloring a tail fin and gluing it to her body leaving the ends open so I could bend them a smidge for movement. I placed the "bubbles" randomly around her. The reason I decided to re-do this card was because my husband and I *wink* decided the deep blue sea was missing! and we sure didn't want to put a mermaid in a fish bowl!
I will be submitting this card to a couple great challenges this week. Please Join the fun with all of these great challenges! but even if you can't I urge you to check out the amazing Design Team of each challenge blog. You WILL be impressed! there is a whole lot of spectacular color in Blogland these days!!
