Fintastic!!! SCS Gate Fold Challenge

This idea centered around some cute 'bubble' printed paper I saw online. Since I own enough paper to scare the trees within a 100 mile radius, I never worry about having themed paper. I always have something close. Until now. So, having fixated on bubble themed paper, there was no way I would be able to shift mental gears and come up with another plan. I happen to be a professional obsessive-compulsive, mind you. Not one of these upstarts who can just drop everything and trot down another creative path. Pffft. Quitters.

So, not having bubble paper, I had to make my own. Which I did, with Distress Ink and a bubble stencil. The mermaid was colored with copics and, having forgotten how to operate a basic shaker cup, stuck the actual picture on the back of the cup, instead of acetate. There are some pretty pink sequins at the bottom of the cup and there they'll stay...the fit was a bit too tight for any kind of shaker action. I dressed everything up with some dies I hoped you would be kind enough to see the resemblance to undersea greenery. The front was made with a square nesting die.

  1. I love the surprise of the rather plain front opening to that amazing scene! And, yes, those dies totally look like seaweed and coral. Great bubble paper too. Very, very cute card !!
