#143 OSAAT - More than one fold




The theme this week, over at One Stitch at a Time, is 'More than one Fold'. I chose the image from Donna's (Lil Diva) Mermaid Silhouette 4 pack on sale at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop.

I'm sorry these photos aren't very good, they're quite dark.

I used a sheet of Papermill white card for this one and scored it to about A6 size when folded. I printed the image on to white paper and then printed and cut out another mermaid image to use as a mask. My Distress Inks were used for the sea and the sand that the mermaid is sitting on. A few Beachcomber shells were used on the seabed, along with some gold 'pebbles' by John Lewis. On the two flaps I used blue paper that I had in my stash. It was printed from a CD and looked like sea/sky but I can't remember which CD it came from, sorry. I made a Happy Birthday plaque which I set above and to the side of the mermaid. Another panel was cut for the sender to write on I fixed this to the front inside page. I used Distress Ink again, on the plaque  and the writing panel, after cutting them with my Spellbinder dies. I used more of the sea/sky paper on the front panels and then used some darker blue card for the opening edges using a Martha Stewart punch.

The sponsor this week is Stitchybear but please check the challenge blog for full details of prizes.
