share your spark fridays ...

Happy Friday, everyone!  And welcome to another installment of Share your Spark Fridays

Yesterday I shared a card I'd made using a punch to add a fun element!  And that brings me to this week's challenge:

Make a card using a punch or punches!  Any kind, shape, or size you like!

Punches come in so many shapes and sizes these days that the possibilities are nearly endless!  There are SO many ways to use them and I can't wait to see what you create and share!

Here's what I did!
When Emily and I were hanging out in my craft room the other day she was working on cards inspired by a design she'd seen in a Martha Stewart magazine: the design included a wave.  I'm not sure how the card in the Martha mag achieved it's wave, but this one was done with a three-quarter-inch circle punch!

I drew a line along the edge of the cardstock to the depth I wanted to punch, inserted the paper into the punch until the top rounded part of the circle punch was on the line I drew, then punched!  The next punch is made the same way, eye-balling the punch's position next to the last to achieve the peak of the wave.  I did this all along the blue kitchen notecard scrap, then repeated it on white and layered them (slightly off-center of one another).  The card base is the green shade from the just-released Chiffon Collection of notecards.

I stamped fishy three times on white cardstock, colored them in with shades of blue Copic Original Markers, and added pretty, superfine glitter to some of the fins with a quickie glue pen.

Now it's YOUR turn!  And don't forget to share your spark by leaving a link to your punched creations in a comment on this post!   I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week!

Notecard, patterned paper, images, sentiment; A Muse.  Copics Original Markers used; B41, and BG10.  Ink; Palette Hybrid Black.
