Swimming With Dolphins Circular Easel Card

Another short 'n' sweet post from me today I'm afraid - I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day at the moment to get everything done. It's my SIL's birthday shortly and she is a dolphin fanatic. So when Teri over at Delicious Doodles released the image Swimming With Dolphins I knew immediately that I would have to use it on a card for her.

The image was printed directly onto the DP's which are from Fred She Said and then printed again onto plain paper. I coloured the image printed onto plain paper with Promarkers and then cut the mermaid and dolphins out. The seaweed on the DP's was also coloured with Promarkers. The mermaid and dolphins were then mounted onto the DP's using silicone glue and then given a coat of Stickles and Glossy Accents.

I've brayered some white cardstock with ink from a Big Juicy Pad and have done the same with the sentiment from Craftwork Cards. The flowers have been punched from the brayered cardstock using a Nellie Snellon 5 Petal embossing punch. The gems in the centre have been coloured with a Promarker.

Thanks for stopping by today
