This week was our first Card & (Your) Cuppa for Children session of the summer. These classes are slightly different this year as they are online. However, that didn’t stop us from having lots of fun!
The project I designed involved a lot of scrunching of cardstock. I provided all of the items the children needed (apart from scissors, glue and adult supervision).
Isn’t this project cute?
Creating the waves was fun. Taking alternate pieces of Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana cardstock, they were ripped to create the wave shape. Then, the fun bit, scrunching the cardstock to give extra texture and a water effect.
Starting at the top, each piece is layered, with some Tulip Builder Punch seaweed added along the way. My seaweed is Mint Macaron, Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam.
The whale is a little bit fiddly to put together, but I think the two-tone finish looks great. Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight are my colours here. I gave the children a whale in both colours so they could decide if they wanted a darker or lighter whale. Some chose to use both.
An eye from the Playful Palette Resin Dots just finishes it off nicely.
Finally, the whale is attached with a mix of regular and Mini Dimensionals.
