CIC - Theme ....

.... Good morning! It's time for our new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#373. This week as well as decorating the front of your card/project, we want you to decorate the inside too. For me this wasn't really a challenge, as I normally do this. But it is fun to carry the design through. Here's my card and the inside too:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm - Chibi Diver, Love & Friends; Dylusions - Ocean Backgrounds
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Green Galore; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Die-namics - Wonky Stitched Ovals # 3, Wonky Stitched Rectangles #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Bermuda Bay; SU DP - Daffodil Delight; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents

I've used the colours from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#407 as they work so well with the image. The layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#251 but I've adapted it for a landscape card. This card is a bit smaller than the ones I normally made - it's a bar 4.

I printed the image on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with a die and then added sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush and some glossy accents to the mask - you can see in the photo!! I die cut some design paper to go behind the image and added a strip of teal card. I used my MISTI to stamp the greeting on the front. I added the image with some dimensional tape. I carried the theme and sentiment to the inside by stamping some sea weed at the edges of the white panel and the sentiment in the middle. I layered this on to a mat layer of teal card.

The sweetness of your card's outside is matched by the sweetness inside! Darling little mermaid enjoying her ocean surroundings...
