A whole lot of BLING !!


What a wet grey day we have today.....but this is sure to brighten it !!

  Over the weekend I have been using fusible fibres on another project and the super thing about these fibres is you can use all your waste bits by simply fusing them together again, hence this card !!

I started with a plain piece of white card which I coloured blue with distress ink and then water splattered . Then I fused my left over cut off fibre bits together to make my background and attached it over the blue card using a sticky sheet.

Next I went mad with frantage at the bottom then mounted it on to a white piece of card, then a pink card blank. The shells are made with paper clay pushed into a mould, when dry, coloured with three colours of gilding wax.

The water bubbles are made using liquid pearls and I then used loads of pearls and bling to add around my shells. Finished off with a Stampin Up sentiment with a bit of frantage added.

Not bad for a card made with left overs !!

PS I didn't point out it is suppose to be under the sea......

How fabulous and certainly colourful Diane. I love the scene you have created and no-one would have guessed that it was from leftovers either. the sentiment is beautiful and so are your shimmering shells. A great project.
