C4C275 Water Scene

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  Our hostess gave us this challenge:

"Create a water scene to celebrate the 2 Zodiac signs of February; Aquarius and Pisces. "

Of course I had to use Karen Burniston's new dies and make a Water Scene Pop Up Card!

All three of the Beach Edges were used for the card front. I added colour by sponging and chalking, and the lowest layer of sand (which is actually one of the Outdoor Edges) has some copper Silk Microfine Glitter added to it.

I love Rocky the Crab character die and am happy for any occasion to use it.  He is popped up on the front of the card with foam tape.

Inside, Rocky appears again - this time holding a camera. This is the birthday card my parents gave our son-in-law, who is a photographer.

Elizabeth Craft Designs has come out with an Alphabet die and it is the perfect size for personalizing cards. You will be seeing a lot of it - from me and the rest of the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Team, from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team, and all over the web as customers snap up this handy die. I cut it from adhesive backed patterned paper (made using the  ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape) which makes them easy-peasy to adhere.

The 'Birthday' was cut using the same patterned paper as Rocky, using the Happy Birthday Pop Up birthday decorator die. All the letters were chalked on the bottom for an ombre look before adhering them to the Lucy Label Pop Up card.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C275.
