Monday Montage 27
August 31, 2014
Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop! I'm just going to apologize now for not having a project from the Holiday catalog. My daughter has requested a Memaid-theme for her 8th birthday and I'm in "under the sea" mode. Yesterday, I spent 5 hours working on her invitations.....this isn't the invite. I'll share it once the party is over.
I used this week's sketch from CAS(E) this sketch so that I wouldn't have to think too much. There is a lot of white space, but I think it really makes the focal point pop even more.
For the background, I used the Night of Navy Blendabilities markers to simply color from darkest(bottom) to lightest(top). I then stamped the coral image in White Craft ink over the background.
A small component of Bella's birthday invitation is some glittery bubbles made with the new Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and Blendabilities. This paper is AMAZING and the effects you can create are just WOW!
I didn't really want to cut out the fish and seahorse, so I used my Silhouette Cameo to do all the hard work. I've got a tutorial on how to do this here.
Be sure to check out all 10 stops on the hop! I know my friends have some amazing projects to share this week.
