Mid June already, Father’s Day, and time for my Sunday inspiration for the challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group 🙂 Our theme (and the blog’s) this month is Under the Sea. There are many beautiful mermaid and sea themed digis at Ching-Chou’s Etsy store. While the image I used, Spring Night, found in this set, doesn’t actually show the beautiful mermaid under the sea, we all know that she was in the depths of the sea before she took a break to admire the sunset. I colored her with Copics, and used a white Posca for some highlights on the water.
Then, my brain went totally blank!!! I tried numerous ways to implement the idea that I had at one point of the card creation….to no avail. I did manage to destroy a bunch of paper, though!!! After realizing that some things just were not going to work this time, I decided on a fairly simple design; framing the image with a pair of die cuts and adding a simple sentiment to the bottom. For a bit of extra “something”, I trimmed around the die cuts to give the card an interesting shape 🙂
