Happy Friday crafty friends! This week lovely Svenja is hosting our Daring Cardmakers challenge and she is daring us to make a water-themed card. You could splash around bathing or swimming or maybe create a splishy-splashy background with inks / sprays / waterstains.
I had the perfect stencil from Clearly Besotted, called Splat It! I inked it up with two shades of blue from Catherine Pooler (It’s a Boy and Cummerbund).
I used a Stampendous stamp set which I’ve had in my stash for several years and I’m not even sure what it was called! I stamped the bear wearing the little rain coat and welly boots and frog umbrella. These were coloured with my triblend markers from Spectrum Noir with a little extra shading using the polychromo pencils and a white gel pen for the highlights.
To save trying to fussy cut the umbrella handle I glued the bear onto the card base and then stamped the umbrella straight onto the card.
Then I just glued the coloured and fussy cut umbrella into position…..
The finishing touches was a sentiment (from the Tracey Hey “Make a Splash” stamp set) and a water drop bead which came with a Papercraft Society box a few months ago. I hope my little teddy splashing about in the puddle brightens up your day. What will you make for this week’s Daring Cardmakers Challenge?
Until the next time, crafty hugs
