Coming Soon! An All Day Workshop

Just a little teaser to let you know
 that I am going to be holding an all day workshop soon. 
Keep watching the blog as the details will be released 
 in the next day or so!

As promised for now, a few more pics from the under
water life samples.  I just love that diver, he has such personality, doesn't he?!   On the first card he is suspended from a piece of acetate from the top of the card
so he moves when you hold the card.

On the dolphin card, I used a piece of acetate to overlay the card, but I ran it through my wizard in an embossing folder to get the texture that you see.  I really liked the effect.  It does obscure the background a bit though, where I tore pieces of different coloured card to create an ocean type scene.  I used the new ''glints'' both on the four corners of the diver card below and I used the large clear glint to magnify the ''Oceans of love"' text on the dolphin card.  They are very versatile embellishments as they both magnify and they accept alcohol ink to colour them to make your project.  I hope these have given you some inspiration!
All for now, Sue x

ALL the cards are awesome, I like the one with the dolphins especially, such a cool idea to emboss the acetate before layering it on the card!

Awesome technique on the dolphin card. I know a little girl who’s crazy about dolphins so I'm always making her cards using them. She is going to love the acetate overlay. Thanks for an inspiring idea.
