It's time for another Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge! Did you know it's National Aquarium month? Cool huh? In honor of our sea pals create something that you might find in the sea or in an aquarium. Don't forget your die cut :)
I tried something completely out of my comfort zone.
I just had a blast with this card. I saw a great tag so long ago on the Tim Hotlz web site and fell in love with it! I could never come up with anything close so I just used it as a guide. Let me give you the details. I started with a watercolor background in 3 colors. Aqua, lime & blue. I let it dry and added some stickles. The starfish are cut from the cricut cartridge Life's a beach. Okay here is where the fun starts. I used some orange ink and inked them all up. Next I got out some Tim Holtz metallic gold paint and splattered away. I used glitter and gold on the fins and then glossy accents for for details.
Lastly, I added some coral and a starfish on top of some clear acetate which I printed "Sea you soon" It's so much fun to try new things.... but I'll leave these techniques for the professionals :)
Thank for stopping by and hope to see you join in the fun!
