One of my friends gives me the best inspiration to make cards. I think it’s because she doesn’t just ask for X card. She asks for an “awesome X card”!
So, this is the “awesome fishing card” I made using the water gel effect. Dawn Griffith has a great you tube video showing the technique. The quick explanation is that you put hair gel in a zip lock bag and add it as a ‘water’ layer in your card.
By good luck, it also fits with this week’s Just Add Ink theme – all things masculine. Although my card is for the mini-masculine fellow, I know quite a few big kids that would enjoy their own version!
My card ended up being a mix of old favourites & new ideas. The Cloudy Day embossing folder is now retired (sadly!) but new to the SU! family is the Festive Flower Builder Punch which I used to create the fish bodies.
The boy is a Silhouette cut I created from an online image. I’m lucky to have my Cameo to help me with the little extras in my cards – but I would love SU! to bring out a die set with children’s silhouettes. I think kids in silhouette look so cute. The craft stash will never be extensive enough for all the ideas I have! Kelly x
