TIME OUT Challenge #130 -- Unique

I’m so excited to be guest designing on the Time Out Challenge. The challenge for the next two weeks is to create a card featuring the keyword “UNIQUE“.   The challenge is sponsored by Catherine Pooler.

My UNIQUE card for this week features one of my favorite Essentials by Ellen sets–Mermaid’s Tail.  I love the sentiment; it exudes uniqueness, especially combined with a mermaid.  The tail is silver embossed and watercolored with Zig Clean Color markers.  On top of the tail, a die cut wave was added, cut from silver Mirracard.  The sentiment is stamped and clear embossed.  The final touch was sequins and jewels.

Happy crafting… I can’t wait to see your interpretation of UNIQUE.

Be sure to stop by each of the Design Team members’ blogs and give them some love.  Their inspiration cards are fabulous.

Supplies: Essentials by Ellen Mermaid’s Tail, Versamark, Memory Box Big Splash Border, Versafine Clair Nocturne, Hero Arts silver and clear embossing powder, Zig Clean Color markers, silver Mirracard, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Little Things by Lucy’s Cards jewels
