St Luke's Charity Card Challenge .....

..... It seems you weren't much inspired by our Sports/Olympic theme challenge last month, but hopefully this month's challenge at St Luke's Charity Card Challenge will encourage some more of you to play along.  What is the theme?  Oh yes, it's:

COUPLES


You are free to interpret this a you would like - human, animal, fun, formal, romantic or not!  The choice is yours - but we do want to see two together!  I've gone for a fishy, fun take for my card - but it's romantic at heart!!


Stamps:  Pink Petticoat - Fish Free with Papercraft Essentials; Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes, Fancy Phrases, Compact Family
Inks:  Distress - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Promarkers - various; Card from stash

This is a little card 3" x 4¼" - just right to show off these sweet fishes!!  I started off by making the ocean background, blending various shades of blue distress inks.  Then I splashed on drops of water - distress inks react with water creating this lovely blotchy effect.  To create the illusion of depth I randomly stamped seaweed and fish in the ocean.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment and the two big fish.  I also stamped the big fish onto white card and coloured them with promarkers and then carefully cut out the various layers.  Those hearts are tiny, tiny!!  A fun card for a couple - could be for an anniversary, a wedding or just because!

Looking forward to seeing your cards.

Such a fun card Deborah - I love the dropping of water onto the distress inks to get the watery effect.
