Under the Sea

This week at AiFactory Challenges we’d like to see you Use Something New.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday June 15th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s beautiful work while you’re there.

I’ve used the cute Mermaid Digital Stamps from AiFactory to create this Diorama card.What better way to showcase these little beauties?All the images have been coloured with ProMarkers then fussy cut out and adhered to the card to make an underwater scene.The fish has been attached with a strip of acetate to not only create extra dimension but give the impression that he’s floating.As for the something new it’s the ribbon I’ve added across the top.

Medium : ProMarkers
Card : Pearlised blue and yellow card from my stash

For my card I’ve used the delightful Strawberry Fairy from Digi Doodle Shop.She’s been coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended out with low odour oils thinners using paper stumps.I’ve stamped a greeting at the top.Both her wings and the stars either side of the words have had Frosted Lace Stickles applied to them.For the background piece I passed some green vellum through my Big Shot using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.I’ve added some tiny gems to the corners where they’ve been punched and tied some delicate looking white organza ribbon (a little like fairies wings) through the vellum.
