Good morning! I really had fun making this shaped card with my Gypsy. All cuts are from Create a Critter. In my last post I said the Gypsy would keep me from wasting so much CS. That proved not to be the case here: I goofed up the card base TWICE before I got it right. Then I goofed up the sand and water layers too! BUT I learned from my mistakes, so it's all good. The card base and water are Tempting Turquoise, bowl is Cool Caribbean, sand is Crumb Cake speckled with Soft Suede, plant is Old Olive (I drew veins on with a marker and sponged edges). Fish is Lemon Tart (PTI), Pretty in Pink, and Pumpkin Pie, all layers covered with the appropriate color of Doodlebug glitter. I just love that little glittery fish! Another think I discovered about the Gypsy is that you can't really use the markers with it, because using the markers involves hitting the load mat button after you have drawn with the markers, and you can't do that with the G. I kind of got around it by unloading the mat but not moving it and hitting the load mat button again. It worked--kind of--THIS time. I won't count on that again. I'm going to shoot an email to PC and tell them to fix that for the next update. The inside has the sent. "birthday fishes" from PTI's Pond Life Sentiments.
