Tartaruga bits and bobs

Mentre organizzavo le mie forme già pronte nei raccoglitori (vedi questo post) ho ritrovato una bellissima tartaruga ricevuta dalla mia blog friend Carol (grazie!).
Era già assemblata con questa bellissima carta patterned, davvero perfetta per il carapace, così ho solo aggiunto qualche puntino con i Nuvo Drops.
Come sempre, ho usato avanzi di carta e i miei soliti bits and bobs e ho realizzato una card abbastanza maschile. Le card maschili sono difficili, per me... :D
La base è un cartoncino bianco, su cui ho incollato in alto una striscia di carta patterned bordeaux; sopra a questa, ho messo un avanzo di carta nei toni del grigio che tempo fa avevo bucato con un punch per angoli. Poi ho aggiunto una striscia di carta patterned grigia con foglie color panna. Queste carte hanno un feel un po' vintage.
Bits and bobs: Per aggiungere un po' di texture ho incollato una striscia di stoffa di cotone grezzo che ho colorato di verde usando i Distress inks + acqua; due pezzetti di rik-rak colorato di azzurro (allo stesso modo), per simulare l'acqua; un pezzo di nastro con molto vecchio intessuto con un decoro a zig zag; un'ancora e quattro stelle marine, tutti presi dal mio organizer :D 
Poi ho aggiunto un sentiment ricavato da cartoncino di recupero, tagliato con un punch rotondo e colorato di giallo, intorno al quale ho avvolto un pezzetto di spago da cucina e per finire alcuni stickers gialli e azzurri ricevuti tempo fa da Milka (grazie!)

Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Buon pomeriggio Alice,

Lo so, lavoro all'indietro, dovrei venire prima a questo post.

La tua tartaruga è così divertente e una parola sul piccolo cerchio è una bella idea, una grande creazione per gli uomini e perfetta per la nostra nuova sfida ad Allsorts, grazie per esserti unito a te.

Qui abbiamo pioggia e molto più freddo, ma promettono che tornerà il tempo soleggiato.

This is so you, although with a masculine feel, I don’t believe I’ve see many masculine makes over here, at least not for some time? It looks great with all the texture and add ons, the ric rac certainly adds a feeling of water on there. The turtle is fab.

Ahhh yes, I remember that turtle and I'm so glad you're able to put it to good use on this pretty card! I love how you created movement of the water with those colorful elements, and that braid is gorgeous! Well done on this one - it's "turtley" awesome :)

Aaaw, the turtle is adorable! How fun to receive it all ready to use! I like all the different elements on this card, lots of this and lots of that, bits and bobs as you say! I think the rikrak is a nice detail as it gives an ocean vibe. This is a great card for a man (yes I struggle with them too!). Hope your summer is going well! We've had a couple cool nights and it has really helped provide some relief. It still gets hot during the day, but it doesn't seem as bad now as the humidity has dropped. I hope the heat wave is over but we'll see!

Hugs,
Kitty

Another wonderful card Alice! Just love the patterned paper you've used for the turtle's she'll, the Nuvo drops are a lovely touch. Lots of fab textures and to simulate water. I like the stickers as they make it look like the turtle is swimming forward. Debra x

Ellibelle ha detto...

It's me again, just saw you also shared your beautiful creation at Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday challenge. Thank you so much for playing along!

That's a beautiful turtle with the floral design on his carapace. I'm sure Carol was delighted with how you've used him. I love all the textures on this one, plus the colors and embellies. Anytime I see lace or fabric used on a card, I think it's delightful. The border ribbon pattern and colors are beautiful ....this is one of your best 'snippets' cards so far, I think Alice. You are really good with combining items into such an attractive and cohesive design! TFS

Lovely card. The turtle is amazing and /I love all your finishing touches. especially the lovely aqua linen I have some that colour and must remember to use it on some underwater themed cards.
