Nemo’s Hiding

Once again Dad is looking for Nemo who’s hiding in some seagrass. The Forest Branches EF reminded me of waves, especially when embossed on Sea Glass CS. The sand and sentiment strip were cut from Kraft. The fish from Under the Sea by Theresa Momber for Gina K Designs were colored with Copics: YR04, YR07, B21, B23, B24, B28, C1. The sentiment is from the My Monthly Hero kit for January cut with the banner die that came in the kit. I edged the sentiment strip with Copic E43 to give it a little dimension. I was pondering how to create the sea grass. The sea grass from Under the Sea is lovely but was too intricate to fussy cut. I tried to hand cut some, but wasn’t satisfied with the result. Then in yesterday’s mail I got my order from Hero Arts that included the Watering Can and Fancy Flowers dies. The tulip leaves in the die set were perfect. I glued them together at the base. I put half of a dimensional on Nemo’s white stripe and one on his back and sandwiched him between the center leaf and the focal panel. The other fish I also attached with dimensionals. The sentiment strip was also attached with dimensionals. The focal panel is matted with Black Onyx, then placed on a Sea Glass card base. This was so much fun to make.

  1. Judy, this is fantastic! I love the hiding Nemo and your coloring is amazing as they almost look real. Great idea with the embossing folder, too.

    1. Thanks Golda. I had some samples of coloring from Theresa’s blog when this set was released that gave me a head start on what colors to use.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Yes, so many toys, so little time. I have some that are still in their packaging. My internal clock is waking me up about 4 am, so that does give me a bit of time to play.

  2. Awesome job! Love the story behind your card. So neat how your order arrived and had the perfect solution to your issue. Love that it fit so many challenges. Great job!

    1. Thanks Lisa. As soon as I opened the package last night and saw the dies I knew I could make them work better than anything I could cut. I’m always pleased when I can make something work for more than one challenge. I actually got three done for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge this week.

  3. Fantastic use of the EF and the tulip leaves. The effect is amazing. Thanks for sharing with us at The Male Room.
