Hi and Good Morning :) I hope everyone is having a fab week so far!
For my card today I wanted to show the versatility and diversity of Cheery Lynn Dies, taking the Seahorse Family as my inspiration and mixing them with some new release dies and older dies too.
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank kraft card base, and layered up MME paper and DCWV aqua card. I ripped the second sheet of paper to reveal the Tolkien quote underneath, and then set about adding some really cool dies.
I used the gauze border die to create a fish-net border, and inked the edges with Walnut DI. I added 2 Tropical flourishes and also 2 mini fanciful flourish dies before layering my sea-horses, coral and picture. I made the flower using the Chrysanthemum Strip (I love these floral strips) and a mini flower from the BAF embellishment set.
Now, in Alisons' world, seahorses would come in fantasy pinks, blues or green, but I have been reliably informed that they actually come in yellowy brown! lol ;) The image is from Crafts and Me, and was coloured in PM's, and I had one of those awkward moments, when my aqua flex marker ran out before I could finish colouring the background - so bah and tut to that!!! Glitter, also continues to be my nemessis! :(
I added finishing touches with charms, pearls, brads, starfish and twine, and 'Robbie' the wee crayfish was created by me just from scrap card! Not my best effort, but quite fun.
All dies used on this card are:
B181A - Embellishment #1 - Mini Flower
B188 - Embellishment #2 - Coral Twig
I am entering this card in the following competitions:
