I'm back with a quick post tonight to share a card I've made for a few challenges.
I wanted to have a go at the latest CASology challenge where this week's cue card is 'Wet'. I was trying to think outside the box but didn't find much in my stash. I then had a flick through my digis and found this image I downloaded for free a while ago. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I found it. The image actually included two elephants but I managed to crop it just to include this little fellow.
Firstly I printed the image onto some white card and cut it out using an oval die. I then printed it again on some blue gingham paper and again on some yellow paper. Then came the time consuming bit, cutting him out so I could paper piece the design, something I've only tried once before. The dots on the ear were part of the image so I coloured these in with a ProMarker, and also coloured in the water splashes. Next I printed the sentiment from an MS Word document, after downloading a font called 'CK Splash Regular' to pick out the word 'splash'. This was cut out using a tag die. I scored two horizontal lines on the base card onto which I adhered the sentiment strip, and above it the oval panel, both of these with 3D foam. Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the water splashes.

Bye for now
