Seas The Day

 Hello crafters!  I selected the Seashells stencil and taped it to a piece of white card.  I used Clear Texture Paste through the mask.  While the mask was still in place, I sprinkled Coral Crush Pixie Sparkles all over it.  I spritzed it with water very lightly then allowed it to sit for a few minutes before careully removing the mask.  I set it aside to dry throroughly.  Once dry, I used the Double Stitched Circles and cut an aperture in the lower corner.  I used the same set to make a thin frame to go around the aperture and added it with mounting foam.  I used the Under The Sea Creatures and cut the seahorse and starfish to go in the aperture.  I also used a bit of the Underwater Life Frame as a coral backdrop for them.  I used the Seas The Day sentiment cut in black and glued to the upper corner of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size. 

I wanted to let you know that Jamie Rodgers will be doing shows on Hobby Maker today at 1, 3, and 5pm using his new In And Out Dies.  You are certainly going to want to tune in to see all his great demos!   All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful shine on the shells when the light catches them, great product to make a lovely backdrop to the underwater creatures.

Morning Sue.
Can I firstly wish our JUNE HORROCKS A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY 🎁🎂🎉 I think I have the date right. Hope you have a lovely day xx
I shell now add my thoughts about today's inspiration. I love the background technique with the texture paste and the one and only Pixies, I use to love watching you demonstrate the stencils Sue, you had me mesmerised, always so perfect and clean I know my attempts would look like a pigs ear, so the biggest thing that attracts my attention here is the background the design within the apature gets a little lost.
Sending love to you both and to all that post today xxx said...

Morning Sue.
A lovely card thank you.
TV is set to record for Jamie.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Morning Sue,
Beautiful background but like Stephanie, I too think that it overshadows the aperture which is lovely.
Would probably change my mind if I saw the actual card itself.
Happy birthday June.

Hello Sue. I am really taken with this card today. Such unusual colours for an underwater style card and I love the pretty little scene in the aperture.

I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
