Morning folks. I hope you had a fantastic Easter and that the Bunny bought you lots of lovely chocolate!!! We unexpectedly ended up having guests which although hard work was really enjoyable! Anyway, it's time for another Delicious Doodles Challenge which this week is LAYERS, so we want to see lots of layers on your projects.
I've used the fabulous images Marina and Seahorses for my stepper card. Unfortunately, my photos really don't do this card justice, but try as I might I just couldn't get one that shows the true colours and depth and sparkle :(
The image has been coloured with a combination of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The fish and Marina's lips have been given some dimension with Glossy Accents, her tail has been given the Stickles treatment and I've added some Clear Star Sakura Gel Pen to the bits in her hair. I've then mounted the image onto some sea green paper and Rock Star Stack Papers from DCWV.
The stepper card base was then covered with a sea green paper. The waves have been cut using a Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On The Edge Scrollwork Die. The sea creatures have been created by importing a copy of the images into a graphics programme, removing all of the surplus items and then re-sizing and flipping the fish and sea-horses as appropriate. They've then been coloured, cut out and mounted onto the card using silicone glue and if necessary acetate. The sea weed has been cut from some scraps of paper using Spellbinders Foliage Dies.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I'm not sure what we're upto, but I'm considering a trip into London to visit the Dungeons and The London Eye.
