HAVE A 'JELLY' HAPPY BIRTHDAY!




Good morning
Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. I am, I'm going down to West Wales to open up my caravan for the first time this year! With the rotten weather and being ill I haven't been down yet and the caravan park has been open since 1st April!! So really looking forward to it and hope the weather stays fine!
Anyway I just wanted to post a card I did for the Lily Boo DT I am on. I used the jelly fish image from the Under Water Collection. I made a shadow box using DS and George Cartridge. I printed the image on to inkjet acetate and coloured it with permanent markers and stickled it from the back for a glittery effect. The acetate panel was then adhered behind the oval aperture. I did a couple more jelly fish which I added to the back inside of the shadow box. The backing paper is illusion film which is a plastic like material and when you move it it moves and just looks like water (I hope this makes sense!) I cut some seaweed in olive green pearlescent card which I cuttled with the CB floral screen embossing folder and some coral in pink and orange pearlescent which I cuttled with swiss dots and layered them on the front of the card. The sentiment is computer generated and font is fruitopia. Finally I added some cloud 9 raindots for the bubbles. I had fun making this card I hope you like it! Lily-Boos has some wonderful images all very different and Sam the lady who is the artist is very talented. Pop over and have a look at the image collections, they come in sets of 6 images for just £1.99 and she also has some freebies on the site too. These are so easy just print and colour!
I'm off now so won't be able to check in til Sunday evening when I get back as no internet connection at the caravan park! Have a great weekend everyone!

...oh my, Julie, what a fantastic card - sounds like a lot of work and I have to admit I'm lost with some of your techniques (I've got a lot to learn) - very cute idea and well done.
