Oh my, I’m running so behind this week!!! You know how things can be going along just duckily, then life hits…..gah!! My Sunday inspiration for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge has turned into a Monday inspiration!! The Facebook AND Blog challenge themes this month are Under the Sea. Ching-Chou has soooo many gorgeous mermaid and sea themed images in her Etsy Store that you’ll really be spoiled for choice!! I used one of my favorite images, Coral Addiction, found in this set.
I stuck to a very limited color scheme when I colored this up with my Copics, then added some sparkly highlights with a Spectrum Noir Gel pen.
I saw a picture of this card fold somewhere a while ago, and doodled it down on my handy desk blotter….but didn’t record where I saw it, or what it was called!! It’s really cool, because it folds flat for mailing, and you can use up some of your paper scraps 🙂 I had a piece of gold foil sea print paper for the background, which led me to cut some of the coral in gold mirror card, and the rest of the coral in white card stock that I highlighted with the gold sparkle pen I used in the image. I stamped a quick sentiment on a fishtail banner die cut, and added some pearls that I’d colored to match the color scheme. I’m really loving this card, and will definitely be using this fold again 🙂
