FCCB Challenge #172 Make a Splash

Cricut meet's Digi Stamps for this weeks challenge over at FCCB !!
We were all given the choice of 5 digi stamps from our sponsor this week 
to play with
I decided to use "Mermaid Ellie"
Here she is ....
...Super cute !!
I used my pro-markers to colour Mermaid Ellie after I'd chosen the papers I wanted to use namely Pretty Please by My Minds Eye and some printed paper from the Paper Mania Capsule Collection CD ROM.

I cut a frame form the Elegant Edges Cartridge, stuck Ellie behind it and the used some Frantage embossing powders. I drew faux stitches just to add some interest around the frame.

I put some Cheese Cloth under and around the left side of the frame with some Hessian and then added these fantastic shells and little star fish

Please pop over to FCCB and check out the DT creations, make your own project using at least one Cricut cut and join in the fun...
the challenge is open until 1900 Sunday

Well ...
I'm off to finish a 70th Birthday card commission, hopefully I'll be back to show it off tomorrow ...


  1. Your embellishments are perfect. Love.

  2. Talk about gorgeous! The shells and cheese cloth are an awesome touch and gotta get some of that embossing powder. Love the look! But how did you do it?
    Scrappy hugs, Connie FCCB DT

    1. Thanks Hunni, the embossing powders are Fran-tage by Stampendous. They are really big mixed colour granules that you sprinkle on the card and then heat from underneath without using embossing ink. They are beautiful and have fragments and glitters to go with them in some fab colour combinations!! Scrummy !! Hope that helps xhugsx

  3. This is darling! Love the cheese cloth with the shells--wish I'd thought of that!

  4. Great card! I love the colors and the cheese cloth and shells are just perfect!!

  5. Your coloring if fab, and the cheesecloth and shells are uber creative! Great Job!

  6. This is fabulous Nikki, I love the image and the shells, netting and sand look incredible!!
