I'm so sorry if some of these posts get so long, I can't help myself, I just get going then I can't edit pictures because they all good-ish.
So here we go..
Die cutting first, so out they all came, my under the sea die..
and it really took me awhile to figure it out..it's my fish..
There they are in the cup, tiny little fish, and all my sea weed and corals cut and ready for inking and gluing down..
Then I found this piece that I had made so used as well for the weeds under the sea..
This is a panel I made and showed the other day and decided on two panels, two cards.
Very shimmery and trying catch that here, but, nope it went all dark..
Die cut some cork for the sandy bottom and started gluing things down as nothing likes to stick on a shimmery background or cork, so had to get ahead and weight it all down..
This one was cut in grey and pink and the pink was cut off the top went on top of the grey.
paper pieced in other words..
Ahhh, Mr.Turtle, I love this guy, he was cut in kraft and smooshed into inks..
now he looks a bit camouflaged.
and then he got a gem for his eye..
So gluing continued and weighted down..
I got on my hands and knees to get into this cabinet to get this stamp set out and sort of got stuck and couldn't get up, that was a bit worrying, finally managed it, but not a good look..lol..
One sheet of corrugated card stock in this colour left,, which went well for the background..
They stand up....but..
and look pretty good....but
Out came my shells and hot glue..
and a starfish...
and onion bag netting...
NOW! I was happy..
So there you go..
two cards on a Sunday afternnoon, and the whole family for dinner that night...phew..
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
