Before I get to my card, I am so excited to tell you that Irina has introduced another image in the new Marci line - Marci Ballerina:
She's available as a digi image for one week only, so hurry over to the store and pick her up!
Today is my last day posting for the Bash, so I wanted to make a really special card, and I hope I succeeded:
What makes it extra special is that it's a tilt card! I put together a simple animated gif so you can how the tilt action allows Sherman to come up for air when needed:
I used Snorkel Sherman and this tutorial on Splitcoast. I used the Create A Critter cartridge for the fishbowl and had to make sure it was big enough for Sherman to swim around so my card is ginormous!! And by ginormous I mean 5.25" tall by 6.25" wide!
I colored Sherman with Copics, then cut him out leaving just a little white margin to make sure he stood out against the background paper. I cut all the other pieces with my Cricut and sponged the white bowl with some light blue ink to give it dimension. Lastly I followed the tutorial to put it all together and added some Dew Drops for air bubbles.
This card is also for the following challenges:
- Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
- Little Red Wagon - Circles
- Cute Card Thursday - Whateva (open theme)
- ABC Challenge - A is for August
