On to the projects! Let's get "Kraken"!
So... in choosing the paper... I loved THIS match. The blue (sky and water) and the
ugliness green was perfect for my monster! Do you see a theme here, yet?
His tentacles are AWESOME! I love the detail...
On my mat, this is what's left after removing the tentacles. Crazy!
"C" for Kraken? lol? I guess if you don't get it... you aren't in my mind, right? But it was funny to me!
Had to cut this a couple of times, since I wasn't using cardstock on the inside. I didn't quite set the pressure/speed quite right. Ugh.
Yep. I am so far from perfect.
And then... Ugh! Be sure to take care in lifting your creations off...
Or you could just take it off... easy-speedy like I did...
What a pain in the **s! But the end result is well worth it.
It took a bit of time and thought, but I did end up getting them just right.
Okey dokey... I loved my Wink of Stella so much... I was so excited to see a whole package of colors! And I bought them
of course! Only to find out... they're not brush tips, which I was totally loving... So... I didn't edge the waves in Stella... The line wasn't like I wanted it.
A glittered and glued!!!!
And my waves turned out... just right.
And YES... this is my elbow.
Note to self (and everyone else, too!) Be sure to put drying glitter/glue thingies AWAY from your active workstation. Otherwise, THIS could happen to you! I happened to do it THREE times before I finally moved it..
See the differences? AWESOMENESS!
I can hear the angels singing!
This... wasn't so awesome.
Another note to self (and everyone else)... Use your MATS! That's what you bought them for... duh! It did come off (with only a tiny bit of residual ink) with a lot of scrubbing and elbow grease no glitter.
And the inside of the tentacles on the paper insert received a little Stella, too.
Hmmm... that reminds me... I think I'll open a bottle...
Ok. Cricut People! People that design cards with inserts! You should note the insert piece should be 1/4" less than the card size. Otherwise this happens, and I am stuck with an unseemly edge
that looks like I didn't know what I was doing (which I do/or I didn't... but I'm a fabulous critic!).
And I fixed it with a little... GLITTER!
I so love this card!
The waves... the scary tentacles... the boat in trouble(d - waters)...
I'm so happy I found this in Cricut Design Studio. All on a search for "waves". Otherwise... I had a different idea. This one, just took over!
Have a fabulous weekend, and let's keep the Kraken "under the sea!"
Up next is Christi
