Cupcake Craft Challenge #88 Don't Be Square

Good morning! Today over at Cupcake this week we have a fab challenge for you... 'Don't be Square'... you can't make a square card for the challenge! So if you're like me and do LOTS of square cards then this'll take you a little out of your comfort zone! Here's my DT card, no squares in sight...


The Design Team were very fortunate this week to be given a digi stamp of their choice from our super sponsor The Stamping Boutique', I chose this gorgeous mermaid which I printed out quite large and used as the basis of my round card. I've coloured with Promarkers and added a little sparkle. Finally some wool fibres and a pin detail added the finishing touches to my card. It was fairly simple to make, although the blending of the blues to get the sea colour took a little while. Worth it though I think!


I'm entering my card for the challenge over at ABC Challenge 'S is for Sparkle' , the 'Make A Splash' challenge at Quixotic and also By The Cute & Girly 'Fairytales' challenge (mine's The little mermaid) and finally Stampin' for the Weekend 'Getting to know you' challenge where we have to use a book for inspiration (again 'The Little Mermaid').


The winner of this challenge will receive either 5 digi stamps or 3 rubber stamps from 'The Stamping Boutique'... they're all fabulous so lots to choose from! Pop over to the Cupcake Craft Challenge to see all the details and the other wonderful DT projects!

Love this, the mermaid theme lends itself well to the round card. Love the colouring (your blue's just right) and the finishing touches of the beads and fibres just add to the magical feel of the card.Lovely.
Hope you're well

Fabulous card, really different. Love the mermaid stamp and the way you have done a sea scene. The colouring looks fabulous well worth the time and the fibres and beads really give it that something else.
