A second card for this week's PS SPARKS challenge. It is funny where inspiration comes from sometimes... I happened to pull out a fishy PS set while looking for Nine Lives for the previous card and when I put it on the table it landed on some patterned paper that said "Season's Greetings"... always one for a good pun I thought it would be cute to create a little scene with some sea sons decorating their 'tree'.
I started by cutting a circle of white cardstock and stamping the scene using bits and pieces from Surf and Turf and then added the tiny Christmas ornament from Hang Ups. I then stamped the four sea critters again on a seperate sheet of white cardstock and then coloured the scene and critters using Copic markers. I fussy cut the critters and mounted them overtop of where I had stamped them on the scene and added some gloss and glitter using two Sakura pens (one Glaze and one Glitter). I punched some small circles out of glitter ribbon for the ornaments and diecut and layered two tiny stars for the top of the 'tree'. After adding some google eyes I mounted the scene on a PTI Tag Sale #4 tag diecut from red cardstock and added a bow using a scrap of patterned paper and the Small Bow die from Lil'Inkers. I cut one of the curved banners from the PS Streamers set from white cardstock using the coordinating die and then stamped it twice once on the diecut and once on patterned paper to match the bow. I fussy cut the one on pattern paper and then stamped it with the greeting and tiny ornament (to which I added another punched glitter circle) before mounting on the white cardstock version. The seasons greetings paper was cut to size for the silver card and I added a strip of glitter ribbon to the bottom before mounting the tag and banner to complete the card.
A little hard to photograph again with all the glitter and glare so I took a close up because the critters are too cute! TFL!!
