Nemo meets hair gel!
Ok I have to explain my title now! This is called a hair gel card! You can find the tutorial here. I will explain it a little bit though. You fill a clear bag with hair gel, sealing well. You create a scene putting it on the back of the baggie so that the gel looks like water. I made one of these for my friend years ago so when I saw that the movie for the Cinema Saturday Challenge #54 was Finding Nemo, I knew that I had to make one for this challenge. You also had to use the colors coral, royal blue, green/blue and white. I also used the sketch from Stampin for the Weekend #20. I have been following this new blog call Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential #3 and you had to make a scene for that challenge.
I created my scene using stickers from K&Co. I just happened to have a clown fish! I also used some bubble stickers. For the outside of the card, I ran the blue panel through the Cuttlebug. I stamped the brown panel and the crab with stamps from StampinUp. I tore the brown paper and distressed it with brown ink. The Hello is a rubon from Memorie Makers. The seahorse is another sticker from K&Co. Under the coral squares I stapled it so that the gel bag would stay in place because it is heavy and that works better than glue. This was fun to make, you need to try it sometime! Thanks for stopping by!
