Splish Splash Splosh... Here comes Summer!

Over at the lovely Crafts Galore Facebook group we have been having lots of fun activities (we still are why don't you join in the fun?) Janice from Scrapper's Delights set up a challenge which offers a lovely free Beach babe digi stamp. As soon as I saw the stamp I knew that I wanted to have her sitting in a lifesaver ring (or whatever you call them!) I then decided to go experimental! I cut two acetate discs slightly larger than the whole in the ring. I created a thick seal around the edge with silicone glue and then filled it with liquid, and glued the other disc on top. As I didn't put water in it, it is totally mesmerising, like one of those pens that you pick up on holiday with floaty bits in the end! everybody that I have showed it to has loved it and found it hard to stop rotating it!
Here's hoping we get some sun here this "Summer"!
Happy crafting!

Thank you so much for entering the LEJ Designs Challenge No. 59 - The Sun Has Got His Hat On...

Absolutely fantastic make! Love the bright bold colours and image. The girl in the ring looks wonderful. Love the bubble pack in the middle, really does add a WOW factor to the card.

We have weekly challenges, so I hope to see many more lovely makes from you in the future.
