MCPT June Challenge ….

I participate in a card challenge on the Cricut Message Board each month.  This month’s image is two little hedge hogs in a boat.

MCPT & Stickles

Here is a picture of the coloring and of course there is some stickles added.

Fish Bowl - Staz - on Azure Blue

The entire card is made out of acetate and folded at the center.  I used Staz-on ink in Azure Blue to ink the edges.  Don’t forget to allow the ink to dry in between coats. 

You can see, I also inked it heavier on the left side of the bowl.  This helps give the illusion that the bowl is glass and has water in it.

Image under Acetate front

Slide the image under the front of the acetate card.  This helps shows the inking on the acetate and helps me determine where to put the rest of the elements.

When adhereing to acetate, I do my best to hide the adhesive under an embellishment.

Acetate shows just about every kind of adhesive.



This is the inside of the card.  I freehanded the splat and it’s mat, then popped it up with dimenstional tape to give it some interest.  I used Cloud 9 splats and hearts to drive home the message.  I also used a Sakura Star Dust Gel pen to do some extra doodling.





Front of Card

So here is the final product….two hedge hogs fishing in a fish bowl and catching the only gold fish in the bowl.

On the outside of the acetate I used Cloud 9 bubbles on the left side of the bowl.  The togetherness is a rub-on and I took clear stickles and colored it using the Azure Blue Staz-On ink.  I used a liner brush to make the commas on the right side.  I used Staz-On white ink for the white flourish.


I loved how this card turned out.  If you want a closer look just click on the picture.  Thanks for looking and be sure and leave me a comment.
