Sea Turtles!

Good Morning Friends!

It is Pam sharing with you on this wonderful Thursday morning!

We are getting very close to our new release for Christmas!  And it will soon be time for us to share the new dies but until then we are showing you some new ideas for those favorite dies from the past!  I live near Hilton Head Island and the area is famous for sea turtles!  So with that in mind I used our turtle die combined with a few other dies to create my card for you today!

Design Steps:
1.  Cut out 2 Sea Turtles one in green and one in brown.  Place the shell panels from the green turtle into the brown and the brown into the green.  I just taped them into place
 2.  Add a little shading to the turtles using TH inks.  Use a fine black marker to make the eye standout
 3.  Use an A2 kraft card base, cut a slightly smaller piece of white 4 x 5 1/4.  Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of wood grain DP and cut an oval in the center using the largest of the Wacky Stitched Oval dies.
 3.  Next cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 kraft card stock and cut out the second to the largest Pierced Oval die in the center.  Glue it directly behind the wood grain DP as shown
 4.  On the white card stock create an inked background for the water.  Use TH inks and then splatter with shimmer water (water mixed with Perfect Pearls Powder)
 5.  Glue to the back of the wood grain DP. (Make sure not to glue to close to the oval opening so you can stick the sea grass behind the oval
 6.  Using the Botanical Garden 2 die cut out the foliage in 2 shades of green card stock
 7.  Tuck the foliage into the oval and glue down
 8.  Add the sea turtle to the card front
 9.  Take a piece of white cheese cloth and spray with a walnut stain and let dry
10.  Add the cheese cloth to the card front and then add the pearls

I hope you are having a good time looking a new ideas for all of those older favorite dies!  I am sure having fun using them again!  Stay tuned for those new Christmas dies coming very soon!
