Creative Belli #96- Sketch and Something that moves

Hello there, and happy Wednesday! Today we have a new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge Blog. This week is it sort of a double challenge. First we have a sketch for you, but we put a spin on it. We would also like to have something that moves on there. Now...your something that moves can be a literal term...like I did, or it can be an image of something that moves in real life (ex: car, butterfly, bird, animal, etc.) So here is the sketch...

Now here is my take on it.A while back I won a set of spinner cards (precut CS to make spinner cards, with directions), so I thought this was a good time to pull those out. I had never done a spinner card before, so this was a new experience for me. I used a blue spinner base piece, and added some of these PP pieces from Imaginisce's Splash Dance Collection. The dolphin is also from that same collection. I stamped and colored it with watercolor crayons. I trimmed it out, and got it all layered up on the pennies to make it spin. I then layered it onto a white CS base. Now this is where I "messed up" a little...lol...being my first time. I totally forgot you can see through the hole...lol. Oh well, it still turned out really cool. Last I added some embellishments. Last year at CHA in Orlando, I participated in some focus groups, well the one group they gave us 2 bags of heat set gems and mirrored pieces. Fabulous for those of us that had heat setters...lol. Well I have one now! I recently got an i-Rock, so I have been going to town using these pieces that have been sitting in my craft room for a year now. So I added the star gem to the dolphin, and the "drops" to the sides of the spinner section. They are supposed to look like splashes. Last, I hand wrote the "Splashing by with..." on the outside, and the inside says "a birthday hi.". Well, that is it.

Now you need to head on over to the Creative Belli Blog and see what the rest of the DT ladies have come up with for this sketch with a spin! Don't forget to play along with us. We really do love seeing what others come up with. So please play along, and add your link to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post on the Creative Belli Blog. Have a great day!
