The KCC is a group of mad-talented women who get together in a Hop format on the first Sunday of every month to show you projects with a new theme.
COLOR and SUMMER are our themes this month.
Here is the card I made for this Hop. First, I printed out the sweet scuba swimmer image (which comes with the fish and sentiment), which I purchased from Hambo Stamps. I printed it out on X-Press Paper and colored the images using Copic Markers.
I cut the sentiment using a tag die plate by Sizzix and inked the edges using CTMH Exclusive Inks, in Sorbet; I tied a piece of twine from The Twinery. I fussy cut the scuba guy and the fish from the white background paper, and popped the guy up on an adhesive spring from CTMH. I used a piece of acetate for the scuba guy's mask for a little more realism. The tag is popped with foam dots.
The background swirled glitter stock that's perfect for this image is from Robin's Nest, as are the Dew Drops I used to simulate bubbles. I decided the piece of cork paper simulated the sandy beach bottom, and its additional thickness is just perfect to hold up the easel card. The sender can use a Sharpie marker to sign the card right on the cork, or I think it would be clever to staple a Post-It Note to the corkboard with a sentiment, too.
Like it? Stop back each month to see how we interpret the themes. Now it's time for you to move on through the Hop for more colorful, summerful, inspiration....
