Ever had one of those “missed it by *that* much” moments? Today was one of those days. I decided I was going to make another card for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Drafts challenge. Half way through colouring and cutting out the elements I realised I was running out of time. I had just finished assembling my little fish tank (you’ll see it below) and decided to check how long was left – 5 minutes. Oh no! Not long enough! Oh well…
Turns out that when I refreshed the page on the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog they had already posted the new challenge and it is an Anything Goes challenge. Silver lining! I kept going with my card (I would have done so anyway. lol), changed the design a little and have decided to enter it into the new challenge. Funny how things work out.
Here’s my card…
Really quite happy with how the water turned out for this card. 🙂 Love the little highlights of glitter on the fish too.
And now I am off to clean up my space as I have somehow found myself working on a patch of desk no bigger than the card I just made. Oops! lol
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
what a fabulous fish tank! so fun and clever! super card! thanks for joining us this week at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!
Thank you, Alice! 🙂 Always fun to join in on the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenges. 🙂
……THUD! Another jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, breath-taken away card, Kylie! Honestly, this aquarium is ultra fabulous with the darling fish and the oh-so-realistic water! Those bubbles…I’m like a school girl giggling with how cute they are – and such simple touches like those have such a mega-impact! Isn’t it great that the Anything Goes landed in your lap; love it!! FIngers crossed that your talent is spotted, because you are DT material to the max! So adoring this card….
Oh C! Thank you!! I was so lucky with the timing of the challenge. Silver lining. 🙂 And thank you for always being my “champion”. It’s appreciated more than I have the words to say. 🙂
Wow…what a card! I love the look of the fish tank, so creative and fun.
Thanks very much, Kim! 🙂
What a darling aquarium! Darn clever idea, Kylie!!! LOVE this. No…YOU’RE fintastic! The water turned out perfectly as did the little swimmers. Another great card. Hey, you need to check out Mama Elephant’s latest challenge too…it’s watercoloring. I think you nail it! Have a great week. Hugs.
I was pretty pleased with how it came out, Bev! Thanks so much for the compliment and the heads up re Mama Elephant. I discovered, only yesterday, that they had challenges. Not sure I have any stamp sets which fit though…time to shop? lol Big hugs to you, dear friend!
Such a lovely card! I can see the designer sketch in there, but you’ve really made it your own! And you’ve also rocked the watercoloring. I’m so jealous of your skill! 😀
My favorite part is the little bubbles. They add such a sweet whimsical touch. 🙂
Oh don’t be jealous, Elle, you are far superior with the water colouring skills! We should just get together and hang out and create. Thanks for the lovely words – they mean so much to me! 🙂
