Mindful Manatee Kids Challenge

There is currently a challenge for kids to have a go at making a card with the Mindful Manatee digi stamp.  It is to encourage us (older) card makers to pass on our enthusiasm for our craft.  We can help the kids with this but the majority of the project must be done by them.  So I took up this challenge.  I printed out the Manatee digi (HERE ) from Beth Duff Designs.  I asked my Miss 9 to have a go. She jumped at the chance.   She keeps bugging me to makes some cards with her and I keep saying....soon, soon.  Well the time has come for me to allow her her opportunity. 

We opened up the new Dylusion shimmer sprays (even I haven't played with these yet!).  Seriously, these are the easiest things to use.  Miss 9 picked her fav colours (keep in mind I don't have the full range...YET!  the rest are now on the wishlist).  She had a go spraying her own background.  Turned out great!  Then she coloured here image and cut it out.  We put it all together and Miss 9 placed all the sequins and gems where she wanted them to go.  VOILA!  When taking the photo I tried to capture the "shimmer ".

 Both of us were extremely happy with how it all turned out.  The colours are so vibrant and "shimmery".  Looks like I have a mini crafter on my hands!  Someone had better take the credit  card away.  Fancy buying for 2 crafters now.  We are in big trouble...hahaha!


  1. Love it! High five to Miss 9! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

  2. She did an incredible job!! And yes, now you both get to rack up the craft bill! :)
