Under the Sea

NEW week, NEW challenge at AiFactory.    The NEW challenge is to use something NEW on your project!  Don't forget to tell us what it is!  You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday June 15th.   No back linking will be accepted but you are welcome to combine with other challenges.  We would really love for you to use one of our images although it is not a requirement.  Do check out all the great stuff we have in our store 

The design team is using the NEW Mermaid digital stamp collection for your inspiration.  I combined four of the images from the set to make my project.  I also flipped a couple of them (another great thing about digital stamps - you can flip, re size, place them in front or behind each other).  I also colored my images with Twinkling H2O's for an iridescent look.  After coloring, I fussy cut the images out so I could use some handmade mulberry paper for the background.

To complete the project, Spellbinder's Grand Labels One (#4,6) were used to cut out the mulberry paper and to make my frame.  I pop dotted the frame so it would look a bit like an aquarium.  

Here's a different angle, so you can see all the dimension and all the shimmer.  Plus, I didn't adhere every part of the image.  As I was fussy cutting the sea weed, it curled a little.  I liked that look and thought the best way to capture it was to only adhere a small portion of each piece.

Be sure to see the other design team member's inspirations.  They are really cool and hopefully will give you some great ideas.
