Making a splash with this week’s CASology cue:
So many ways you can go with this! With the World Swimming Championships on at the moment, I thought of swimming pools, then floaties and rubber duckies, but had nothing in my stash to make a card, so I went in search of the perfect digital image, and I found it:
Isn’t she cute? No floaties, no swimming pools, but a favourite aquatic activity all the same!
And the inside reads:
I really think her face says it all! Look at her eyes. That’s pure bliss right there!
There is something truly indulgent about having a long, relaxing bath! Been a while since I’ve done that! Would have to compete with all the kids’ bath toys…not quite the same!
So, for the card, I coloured the image using Derwent water-colour pencils and a wet brush. The bubbles got a bit of glitter treatment to make them sparkle, and her eyelids needed some Wink of Stella. After I’d finished with all the colouring, I die-cut the card into a ‘bubble’ for a bit of fun, and added a circular frame in a blissful yellow.
We are very fortunate to have Uniko Studio sponsoring our Challenge this week, so don’t forget to check the CASology blog for more details, and the rest of the Design Team for some awesome aquatic inspiration:
