In fondo al mare...

Questa deliziosa piccola sirena (timbro digitale di LOTV) aspettava il suo momento da un bel po' di tempo...così come le conchiglie e le alghe di Chocolate Baroque!
Ci sono molti bits and bobs, layers, ricicli e forme fustellate in questa card...
 
La base è un cartoncino azzurro chiaro piegato a metà. Sopra ho messo un cartoncino verde, perchè -alla fine di tutto il lavoro- mi sono accorta che avevo incollato il pannello al contrario :(( e così ho dovuto tagliare la card LOL. Sopra ho messo un cartoncino blu scuro, poi una carta patterned a pois e sopra ancora una carta recuperata da una rivista e passata in un paper crimper per ottenere l'effetto "onde" (la stessa carta che ho usato per questa card). Ho strappato i bordi alla carta con le onde per aggiungere texture.
Sugli angoli ho messo dei mezzi cerchi embossati, ritagliati da una vecchia card che non mi piaceva per nulla. Avevo embossato il cartoncino con una EF e poi avevo usato della mousse glitterata di due colori. La card era venuta orribile ma aveva una texture interessante e un bel luccichio e così l'ho riciclata. :D
Tornando alla card di oggi: a sinistra ho incollato un bordo Signature Dies by Johanna Sheen e le belle conchiglie di Cioccolato Barocco, colorate con i Promarkers e ritagliate a mano. In basso ho aggiunto dei piccoli leftovers di carta colorata con i Distress Ink avanzati da altri tagli: assomigliavano ad alghe... :D
... Sicuramente vi sarete già accorti che la card è piena di Nuvo Drops... forse anche troppo... ma non riuscivo a smettere! LOL :D
In alto a sinistra ho messo un'ancora, a destra una stella marina. Ho aggiunto un cavalluccio marino verde (brand Memory Box) sopra le alghe, poi due pesci, un'altra stella marina e una conchiglia (fustelle trovate in una rivista). Le alghe a destra sono fatte con una versatile fustella Tattered Lace che tempo addietro ho ricevuto da Brenda, insieme a molte altre che lei non usava più (grazie mille, Brenda!!)
Anche la sirena è colorata con i Promarkers Ho fatto dei puntini con la penna gel bianca sui suoi capelli (verdi) e ho aggiunto Wink of Stella un po' dappertutto, anche sui cavallucci marini.
Purtroppo nelle foto non sono riuscita a cogliere tutto il luccichio...
Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Absolutely gorgeous Alice!! Beautiful colouring of the mermaid and her sea friends. Fantastic use of die cuts which all work perfectly together to create your wonderful scene. Can you ever have too many Nuvo drops? I think not :D. This is just a marvellous card and I love it!!! Debra x

Buon giorno Alice,

Così tanti pezzi belli e diversi da te di recente, sei stato sicuramente molto impegnato. La tua immagine LOTV è così dolce e abilmente combinata con tutti gli altri elementi per creare una così bella creazione estiva.

Passa un buon fine settimana. Qui abbiamo ancora sole e 30 gradi, tempo davvero insolito nel Regno Unito per così tanto tempo.

So enjoy seeing what you've created with your bits & pieces, the recycled objects and this one is stunning - as always. So many layers, details. The crimper really did give the effect of wave in the magazine piece, and brilliant idea to do that. I thought the Nuvo drops were perfect for all the tiny water bubbles too. It's a darling image, beautifully colored. I also really liked using the little 'heart vine' as seaweed. YOu've got lots of lovely & perfect embellishments and wonderful that you could see the possibilities of your 'boo-boo' card. Sometimes I can see with that kind of an 'eye', but usually not so much! This was a brilliant save for you. Well done, Alice! This is gorgeous. TFS & Hugs.

Lori ha detto...
