Well, some of our hearts are fluttering over this one, but not mine. I will be the first to admit, inspiration did not come as easily with this word as others. I thought of butterflies and hearts, but wasn’t wanting to go those routes as flying things and valentine type cards just aren’t prompting any creativity from me these days! Pumpkins are on the brain, but those just don’t flutter that I’m aware of!
I ended up on a completely different track as I thought back over the summer months and swimming. Flutter kick anyone?!
I stamped a little boy image I had buried in my stash, used only the shorts and legs & colored them with Copic markers. I adhered everything but the legs and feet to the card, wanting them to kick freely! I used one of Mama Elephant’s Creative Cuts dies and a metal sheet from Add a Little Dazzle (our sponsor this week) to create the wave, adhering it directly to the card base. The sentiment was stamped last and is from a retired CTMH (Close to My Heart) set.
I really hope this guy knows how to swim because that’s a pretty big wave I gave him to master. Sorry, little dude.
I hope you’ll take some time to visit the rest of the design team blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog! They’d love to hear from you!
