The Squirrel and the Fox DT Challenge 49 Nautical/Sea Life

Ahoy there, me hearties! It's time for another Challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and this time we want you all to put on your cute Sailor Suits and make a card with a Nautical or Sea Life theme! Arrr!

Our sponsor is Oak Pond Creations who are offering a lucky winner 3 free digistamps of your choice! Go and have a look-see at their fabulous images!

The DT were given some digis to play with, I chose the adorable Beach Crabs they are so cute!


I can't remember what this kind of card is officially called, but the front has been trimmed into a triangle.


The papers are 'Splash' by Echo Park, they're gorgeously bright! I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added gold stickles here and there to the sand. The image is cut with a Spellbinders' Deckled Rectangle die, the deckle looks a bit like waves! or is that just me?

The dancing starfish were cut from a Nitwits paper from the From the Sea collection, and I used gold stickles round the edges. The seaweedy leaves are cut with a Nellie Snellen punch.

Do sail or swim across to The Squirrel and the Fox and see my teamies' fun cards!

Splice the mainbrace! Hard a'starboard! WHERE'S ALL THE RUM GONE??!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Forest Green, Bright Green, Leaf Green; Spice, Bright Orange, Mandarin, Apricot; Gold, Canary, Yellow; French Navy, Aegean, Sky Blue; Caramel, Tan; Cool Grey 3, 1

Wowzers! Love this card. Mags, it looks like a modified triangle tri-fold? I'll just call it fantastic, how about that? I love the die-cut image and of course, your coloring is just fab! Wonderful DP and layout. I think I'm going to have to make one of these right now! :) Hugs and happy crafting! -Kim
