I'd like to be... under the sea...

Happy friday!

Thanks to all of you who splish-splash-sploshed along with us last week. Wasn't it a joy?

It's Svenja here and I'm kind of sticking to a watery theme. Because...

I'd like to be... under the sea...

I would like your cards to feature any kind of underwater life. Virtual extra brownie points for octopusses (with or without gardens).

Hope this crafty weekend goes swimmingly for y'all. If you're still in need of some inspiration, here's what the Design Team have created to get you started:

Splish, splash, splosh

Thanks to everyone who got creative with counting and came up with some great 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 creations for last week's challenge - we loved seeing them!
Splish, Splash, Splosh
It's Joanne here this week and I'd like to see you get loose and unstructured with watercolours, inks or paints to create a focal point, background or accents for your project - sploosh, spray and splatter to your heart's content! It can be a little bit scary when you're not in total control of the results but it's fun to let go and remind yourself there's no right or wrong every once in a while!

Here's what the design team let loose this week:

Have a prickly summer


Thank you for showing us your beautiful wedding-related cards. They were quite different in colours and styles and gave us a lot of new inspiration.

This week it’s me, Miri, bringing you a new challenge and I would love to see a cactus or several cacti on your card!

cactus/cacti

Cacti always remind me of summer, sunshine, deserts and holidays… and I just can’t wait for our summer holidays to begin and for the sunshine and heat to come back again.

Luckily cacti are a huge trend at the moment and you can find them on many stamps and patterned papers. So let’s have a good look at them and get in a summery mood.

Happy crafting!

And here you can see some beautiful cards from our design team members.
