A Manatee-rific Birthday Card | ft. Lawn Fawn "Reveal Wheel" Die Set
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
So before I get into the card (which is awesome, by the way) I'll give a little back story to where I've been. Last month, my old boss called me up and offered me a full-time job, naturally I jumped at the chance. I opted to not give up my part time job, and therefore have been working insane hours. Twelve days on and only two off, so it was exhausting. Then my part-time job, also offered me a full time position, so I left the other job and am only working one at full time now. Sadly, they will now need to full my part time position so I'm still all about the map for days. I'm desperately hoping to get some time in the art room. I miss it, and all of you dreadfully.
Anyway, on to the card!
To begin, I cut all the pieces I needed with the "Reveal Wheel" die set out of 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I stamped the images from "Manatee-rific" with Memento Tuxedo black ink and created masks for them.
I masked the images, then used Distress Inks to create the ocean background. Once that was dry, I removed the masks and coloured all the images with Copic markers.
Once my panel was completed, I assembled the wheel mechanism; which is so incredibly easy.
I then mounted the entire lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base. To finish off the card, I used some of the Ocean Wave crystals by Studio Katia (which FINALLY arrived, like a week ago) in place of bubbles.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on Youtube. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
