Diving Candace

Recently I won a prize at Cupcake Inspirations blog and it was for a set of digis called Splash of Fun from Chi Chi Memories and this card uses Diving Candace from that set.

Using the latest sketch over at Chi Chi Memories blog I have covered the base of the card with a cool paper which has shells and starfish on it from DCWV. The image is coloured with Promarkers and matted onto a scrap of card which has different shades of blue on the background. The sentiment is also mounted on this. Both are raised with 3d foam.

I have used different shades of blue and green ric rac ribbon to emulate seaweed and used a leaf punch to cut loads of leaves in two different shades of green. I am really pleased with how this card has turned out and I am also getting a chance to use papers that have been in my stash for years and years.

Card Size - A5
Sentiment - Die cut from Let's Make Cards magazine
Paper - DCWV
Embellishments - Ric Rac, large gems from Paperchase
Tools - 3d Foam pads, leaf punch

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical order) :-

This is such a cute and fun summer card. You did an amazing job at making the card feel like she is really under the water. I hope you have a wonderful day.
