Piccola sirena

 
Sarà la voglia di vacanze... ma io sono ancora in tema marinaro :D
Adoro le bimbe Gorjuss e questo piccolo timbro aspettava da molto tempo di essere usato... Così ecco qui la sirenetta Gorjuss su una piccola card, fatta recuperando una lunga striscia di cartoncino bianco avanzata da un altro lavoro.
Ho piegato la striscia e ne ho colorato metà con i Distress Oxides, aggiungendo delle gocce d'acqua.
Ho fatto la stessa cosa con l'altra metà della card, ma lasciando i colori molto più chiari, in modo da far trasparire il bianco. Poi ho tagliato la parte più scura con la Big shot e la fustella Memory Box Big Splash in modo da ricavare le onde.
I pesci sono un timbro Chocolate Baroque. Il cavalluccio marino (Memory Box) è tagliato da un piccolo avanzo di cartoncino bianco con una fustella Memory Box e poi colorato con i Distress Inks; idem per il timone, la conchiglia e le stelle marine.
Ho colorato la sirenetta e i pesci con i Promarkers, li ho ritagliati a mano e ci ho messo sopra del Wink of Stella (purtroppo nelle foto non si vede molto). Ho usato un pennarello nero sui bordi per rifinire le imperfezioni del taglio e dare dimensione.
La sirena e la conchiglia sono incollate con il foam biadesivo. Ho colorato anche il retro della coda della sirena, così -all'interno della card- la coda esce fuori dalle onde.
Con il senno di poi, mi rendo conto che avrei dovuto attaccare un pannello di acetato sul retro della parte frontale... Ormai è tardi. Pazienza! :D
Con questa card intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

What a fabulous and just perfect for Summer. I love how you've layered it up with the die cut and all of the other various elements and they all work together beautifully. I think the Mermaid had the right idea about cooling off in the water in this hot weather, perhaps we should do the same! Enjoy the rest of your day x

This is such a wonderful nautical card, and I love how you created the watery background! Love that modest little mermaid and how you colored her, but it's genius how you placed her so that when the card is opened she's behind the water! Brilliant and cute creation!!

Di ha detto...

Beautiful mermaid with shimmery hair and I think your solution to make the inside part of the card front so clever. With this design no vellum or acetate is needed.

MaryH ha detto...

Very refreshing and cool-feeling waterscape. Love your 'sea' panels, and great job at creating all that texture with the droplets. The little mermaid looks right home with all the shells, nautical features, and the edge effect on teh darker blue panel was another design detail that created a feeling of water movement. Love this one, Alice. TFS

Dawn ha detto...

That water edge die is my new favorite thing. Your mermaid is awesome too!! Thanks for sharing with us at Through the Purple Haze.
