CCM #215 At Least Two Dies or Punches

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers today is to use at least two dies or punches, or one of each.

215 At Least Two Dies or Punches 01

My image is from a lush paper pad by Katy Sue from their Mermaids range, which I die cut with Sue Wilson’s new Festive Frames, Eve, die, that in turn was matted onto the outside die from the same set which I cut from plain white card.

The background was created with my favourite My Favourite Things stamp background, Whimsical Waves. I stamped it with versamark onto the same white card I die cut the outer frame from and embossed in clear powder. I then used a combination of Spectrum Sparkle and Tonic Aquaflow pens and a spritzer to create a underwater background. I fussy cut out the mermaid, sentiment and the three patterned fishes from the same pad as the original image. The two shimmery fish just peeking out from beneath the diecut frame, and the tiger shark are all tiny die cuts by Marianne Designs. I edged the background with a green copic marker to give the illusion of a thin mat, and decoupaged up the extra elements of the image. A sprinkling of glamour dust around the water elements of the image and the mermaids tail completed the design.215 At Least Two Dies or Punches Shimmer

I have a second picture to show the shimmer, as it doesn’t show up well on the camera in the normal light!
