10/13 Sun & Moon in the Sea
Today's challenge at SCS is to create a card based on an inspiration piece. The picture above was our inspiration piece and the card below is what I made based on that idea. I love challenges like this because it really makes me think outside the box. I didn't have a sun stamp, but I did have a star fish and the sun is a star, right? I thought the sea horse would make a nice moon and that's how this card got its start. I used lots of circle in this card based on the shape of the inspiration piece and because bubbles are round.
Stamps: Fishy Friends from SU (retired); letters from Hero Arts Ink: StazOn Black Paper: Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue, Glorious Green, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper Accessories: Cuttlebug Bubble Background, 1/2" punch from SU, Ticket Corner Punch from SU, Circle Cutter from CM, Aqua Painter, Markers, Ribbon and Glue Dots to adhere the punched letters.
My daughter, Kari, is doing a Science Fair project about bubbles and she wrote to a professor at the University of Nebraska about her project. This professor has done extensive research on the science of bubbles. Well, much to our surprise, he wrote back and enclosed a 17 page article about bubbles for additional research and two DVD's about Bubble Science! This will be our thank you card to him for all of his time and help. I know her project is going to turn out just great thanks to all of his help! How nice of him to take the time to help a 12 year old girl in MN with her science project!
