Hello! Todays blog is another design team contribution for Creative Knockouts using a gifted image from our sponsor All Dressed Up.
I chose to use the Little Fishes image and to print on mixed media cardstock and watercolour with SU inks. Love how it came out. I decided the image was a little bit large for my card though (I should have printed it smaller!) so did chop off the edge a little.
The theme for this challenge is embossing fun so I grabbed a stencil and a piece of cardstock and using versamark through the stencil, then adding the fabulous Baked Texture embossing powder I created the panel of splashes. This has a lovely texture and mix of colours and is a lovely way of adding something special into the card.
I also chose to emboss the die cut birthday which makes it into a lovely dimensional glossy embellishment.
I did add a panel of dsp in the Tahitian Tide too and put all those elements on a pale green card blank. The cardblank was A4 size but I trimmed it down to 6×6 and then used an offcut to die cut the Happy letters. I did think it needed something else whilst I was putting it together so die cut the cloud from Gummipan as a final element.
