Not a chance here today, it's grim and drizzly. It's DCM day though and Kathy's asked us to make a card with no more than 5cm square decorated. We're allowed a greeting/sentiment in addition. I had a little paperclay starfish out on my desk left over from another project so I decided to inject a little sunshine into my card for this dare to make up for the weather.
I made my square just a shade smaller than 5cm so things could break out of the edges if necessary! Sponged with three shades of blue ink, added some jute garden twine as 'rope' and then added the starfish. I hope Kathy will forgive the little bit of piercing to accent the sentiment!
ETA: I made push moulds a while ago with polymer clay and things from a bag of decorative shells etc I picked up for a pound in a charity shop. If you dust the mould with talcum powder and let the paperclay shapes dry thoroughly before trying to release them from the mould, it works perfectly! I just coloured the starfish with blending chalk.
Supplies: Adirondack inks - Cloudy Blue, Stonewashed, Denim; Delight paperclay; push mould made from a real starfish; jute twine; Sunny days stamp (Cornish Heritage Farms), Plaid chalks (autumn)
Thanks for taking a peep - I'd love to know what you thought if you have a moment to leave me a comment :o)
