In the swim


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Kids.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I started by giving Josh – Underwater by Crafty Sentiments Designs a coating of Pebeo Drawing Gum then created some undersea ripples with a few blue Distress Inks and the torn edge of a piece of copier paper,when it had dried.Once that was done I rubbed off the masking fluid and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers followed by  some 3D Crystal Lacquer on his goggles and the bubbles.I cut a frame from some textured card using one of my new dies 🙂 This was mounted onto the card front with foam tape for added dimension.I printed the sentiment,made by me in Word,onto more of the same card and that was also mounted on foam tape.A few dew drops were dotted around to complete the watery feel.
