Mermaid Shellina Under the Sea.

Hello everyone :)

I have coloured an underwater scene using 'Mermaid Shellina', 'Coral Sea Floor' and 'Mermaid Castle'. Although this took a few day's to colour, stopping and starting I really enjoyed it. It's fun watching a project come together.

C.C. Design Inspiration Post/Tutorial


Hi all, it's Andrea here today with a How to & What not :)
In this post you will see I have done a How to for a CAS card, I don't know about you but I didn't know what a CAS card was for a long time even when people were saying I had made a lovely CAS card lol then one day feeling a bit stupid I asked what CAS meant and was told it stands for 'Clean and Simple' and then it made perfect sense, at that is my style even though I dabble in different genres I tend to keep coming back to 'Clean & Simple cards. 

This is the card I have made using 'Dude' from this months release, he is such a cool dude.  

I didn't realize I was making a tutorial this month and had already made this card so instead of doing another card I decided to de-construct this one, not such a good idea as you will see as we progress, but in the end it turned out ok. I have a few photo's to show you how I did it. This is what I used. 







And this is how I put it together :)

Adhere the fish patterned paper on to white card stock


Adhere the Star strip along the bottom of the fish paper


Whoops, I skipped a step here and forgot to take a photo sorry but as you can see I mounted the sentiment with mounting tape and did the same for the featured image.

I then mounted the hand cut flags.

21 (2)_result

Copic's used were - 

Skin - E50, 51, 21, 11, 93
Hair - Y21, 23, 26
Sunglasses - R24, 27, N5, 7
Shorts - BG11, 13, 18, C1, 3, 5
Surfboard - YR15, 07, B02, 05, 06, Y04, 08.

I have used a sentiment from AmyR's new sentiment stamp 'Pool Party'

Papers used were Doodlebug Design Inc - 6 x 6 paper pad - Boys Only

All done :) with a few crinkled pieces of paper due to being removed from the original card. 
So that's how I make a 'Clean & Simple' card, I hope you have learnt at least what not to do from this tutorial.
