This was actually quite hard to do, and I used the demonstrations by Noreen at Flowersoft, and her design team to finally get this card to work without leaking everywhere!!
Boy was that a task and a half, but now I think I have it licked, and will add a very important tip at the end of this post!
The image itself is by Kathy Ostman-Magnusen, and you can find it here. Its of 2 Mermaids, playing in the Waves, and was exactly the theme I wanted to work with for my Water experiment.!
One acetate dome,
a sheet of clear acetate,
Mica Powders by A touch of Mica
Zyron Design Runner, Holiday font cartridge,
Cheery Lynn Mega doily Circle die,
Cordinations card stock,
Lilac Card Stock,
White Card stock,
2 Large Brads,
Touch of Mica mask, Squares,
Gold Sakura Gel Pen
When that was dry I added the Gold pen to the anchor, and some clear glitter to the wave tops, just doesnt show up on these photos!!
Next I used a small amount of Blue Mica powder in some water to put in the acetate dome, and glued the clear acetate over the back with some Silicon glue. You need to use silicon Glue as it is waterproof!!! Then leave it to dry!! For as long as possible!!!
I took a 6x6" piece of Purple Coredinations paper, and embossed it with the Mica mask, then sanded it back lightly to expose the core colour. I used a circle cutter to make an aperture in the paper, and cut it to size, and then used the Cheery Lynne die on the lilac Card stock. I cut a circle, using the bottom of a bowl, and made a card base to which I stuck the lilac card, then the focal image, then the coredinations paper, over the acetate to fix it in place.
For the base I used another sheet of lilac card stock, and trimmed it with the wavy scissors, then used the design runner to create a running border, Sailing, around the edge. A piece of white card had a sentiment, from the Holidays font disk, printed on it, then I mounted it onto a small rectangle of Lilac card stock.
I used the Amethyst promarker to edge the card and sentiment, to provide some emphasis, and then mounted the sentiment using foam tape.
Top Tip: if you want to do this, cut the sheet of acetate to size before fixing it to the dome!!! As soon as you start to trim, you may find that it starts to leak as you are disturbing the silicon!!!
