INAS Challenge #40

Good Morning,

I am so excited to show you what I made for my design team; International Art and Soul.  The theme is #40 - Marine, Ocean or Sea.  This challenge was perfect for me because I live at the beach and I am always looking for new "beachy" projects.

I made a mermaid paper sculpture.  



I have to say, I grew a lot of brain cells getting this all pieced together.  It is 5 layers of paper altogether.  She fits into a 12x12 Shadow box.

Here she is hanging on my wall.



Recipe for this paper sculpture:

SVG File - Dreaming Tree
Paper - Bazzil white, Bazzil pink, DCWV Glitzy Glitter Cardstock, DCWV Neutral Metallics.
Inking - Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalks
Bling - Prima

I am entering my mermaid paper sculpture into the following challenges:

My Kind of Day

Good Morning,

I love Mo's Digital Pencil but I can only afford to buy his digital stamps when they are on sale.  Recently, I was lucky enough to catch a big sale.

As soon as I saw this digital stamp I thought, wow, this is probably what I look like on the beach!  The Chesapeake Bay is "down the street" from my house so I spend a lot of time at the beach.



This is two digital stamps combined.  One is called Beach Nanny and the other is from a group of beach elements that you can purchase together I chose the tote bag because I always have one with me. 

I made the background paper by spraying paper with  Dylusions Lemon Zest Ink spray, letting it partially dry and then I put the circles on it with a Mini Ink Blending tool.  I put the digital stamp at an angle because I happened to sit it on the paper that way and I liked it!

Here is the inside of the card:

Water You Up To?

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is enjoying these last weeks of summer.  Did you have a favorite summer treat when you were a child?  My favorites were Root-beer Popsicles or delicious creamy dreamsicles!  When I was small and the icecream truck came around my parents would buy 5 cent popsicles and cut them in half because I had so many brothers and sisters we only got half a Popsicle.   I never remember ever hearing anyone complain about only getting half.  It just was how it was, we wore hand-me-down clothes, sometimes hand-me-down shoes.  With 13 brothers and sisters, we all had to share.  Then when I was 11, I got a baby sitting job and I could buy my own!  I started buying 10 cent orange dreamsicles oh what a luxury!

Here is my card:


I love this digital stamp!  It is by Mo's Digital Pencil I got it when it was on sale.  I love red headed boys.  I have always said there is nothing sweeter in this world than a 7 or 8 year old boy.  They are full of mischief but so sweet!  I love this image with the dreamsicle in one hand and the squirt gun in the other!

Here is the inside of the card:


I thought these stamps were perfect for this card.  I can't tell you where I got them because I have had them for over 7 years!
