Water Fun-Platinum Scraps Challenge

Hello Everyone!

I am here today with a project using a sketch from Platinum Scraps! I had an awesome time last week playing in their challenge and thought I would play again! When I saw the sketch, I immediately knew what picture I wanted to use. Go on over there to Platinum Scraps and see all of the different interpretations of this great sketch from all of the talented designers!

For this layout, I used different DCWV paper collections; The Spring Stack, Butterfly & Blossom and Green Tea. The blue pp reminded me of a pool. To add a little interest to the paper, I painted some “waves” with acrylic paint and Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. Now the paper has shimmer!

In a similar pattern, just darker, I cut the bubbles and shadow for the title. I also used the Wave Border Punch (Fiskars) to punch a border in that same paper. The pattern from the mat was layered on the wave. The strips were cut from the paper collection. I used the Gazelle to cut the title.

The flowers are a combination of I Am Roses (gardenias, rose buds-orange, cherry blossoms), Prima (yellow and pink roses), Stamping Scrapping (white rose buds) and Michael’s Dollar Bin (white mini roses). The foliage was cut using Spellbinders dies. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and ZVA crystals were added.

That is it! I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Remember to go over to Platinum Scraps to play along! Have a great day! Kenya~
