It's time for another challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut blog!!! This week the theme is "Set the Scene," you create a project that shows a scene, and don't forget you have to use at least one Cricut cut. I wanted to create something soft and peaceful, so I made a beach scene using my decorating chalks and my Cricut.
I cut out the sand castle, bucket and shovel, and the little sand piles using my Create a Critter and Simply Charmed cartridges. Then I used a red and yellow glaze pen to add a little bit of shine and depth to the cuts. I wanted to create a peaceful feeling, so I created a beach with the water, and a setting sun using my decorating chalks. I really love using chalks. I tend to forgot about them, then use them a lot on a few projects before they get "lost" in my craft room again. To create the "printed on" look of the sentiment. I stamped "Thinking of You" on the card, using Versa Mark ink, before I used the chalk, then I ran a couple of light layers over the stamped image with the brown chalk. I love this technique as it always produces a clean and crisp image of your stamp. I finished the card off by putting everything together, using foam tape on the bucket and one of the plies of sand. I love the way the card turned out.
