CASology – Ocean

It is time for a new CASology challenge. Check out the latest challenge – Ocean!

Here is my take:

Swim in the Sea | by karen h @ carefree creations

I frequently make cards where ocean is a theme, so I really don’t know why I struggled with this challenge, but I did. Some of the problem was that the things I tried did NOT work (why do I keep PearlEx powder in my stash – I can never make it work for me!).

My original idea was to pair this watercolor background with a jellyfish image, but that didn’t work (either because I messed up the jellyfish with the PearlEx or I realized the image was too small in comparison to the water). After a bit I decided I really wanted that water to take center stage anyway.

After stamping the palms on regular paper, I fussy cut it out and popped it over the water with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is white embossed.

There is an extended deadline for this challenge! I hope you join us at CASology – and, for more inspiration, check out the other design team members:
