I have been doing some kind of craft or another most of my life. My greatest craft love is making cards, which I have been doing for 18+ years. I love having a blog to share my creations with you and hope to inpsire you to create something. Thanks for stopping by.
Hello everyone, sorry for the little break in posting. Hubby had shoulder surgery last week so things have been a bit out of sort around here.
I am in love with the way this one turned out.
I colored this cute little Whimsy Stamps digital image Gertie with my Copic markers, I colored the lips extra dark and then covered them with Crystal Lacquer. I cut the fishbowl using my Cricut cartridge Create a Critter a couple of times then glued a piece of clear acetate to the bowl and pop dotted it over Gertie. I added a few Fiskars ZingZ stickers as water splashes, I love these things for water.
Here is a close up of the fish bowl and Gertie.
The saying I stamped using a Rubbernecker stamp, go check them out they have some really cute stamps and sayings. I stamped it onto Spellbinder die cut outs.
I searched and searched through my papers to try and find some kind of water paper or something to use as a background (probably spent about an hour+), then I saw this orange polka dot paper and it was PERFECT! I had the blue/aqua holographic paper in my stash for a while and it all fit together. Funny how sometimes you have something in your mind and search and search only to come up with something totally opposite that works out much better.
Well thanks for stopping by to take a peak on Gertie, hope you like her.
