A Piece of Me
The theme for the challenge at Dilly Beans is to create a project based on you. I really enjoyed putting this together including my favourite things. I am heavily involved in swimming so I went with an aquatic theme. I included lots of "bubbles" on my card, some waves and a mermaid. My favourite two colours are yellow and orange and my favourite flower is the carnation. I only had blue and pink carnations so I decided to use the pink one and add some yellow to it to give it a variegated effect (I love variegated flowers anyway so this is another element of me).
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Dilly Beans - Create a Project based on YOU
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Spots and Dots
Craft Your Passion - Include some yellow
I have used a paper from Sugar and Spice Studio for the background. The wave is a Memory Box die which I cut from yellow cardstock and then embossed with an embossing folder. The image is from Dilly Beans and has been coloured with copic markers. I also added some Stickles - Star Dust to the swimwear. The pink carnation comes from The Paper Temptress. I added some yellow to the carnation by dabbing Distress Stain - Mustard Seed onto a craft sheet and then dipping the flower into the stain.
