Global Design Project - 'Theme Challenge' #gdp083


What a fun theme for this weeks Global Design Project #gdp083;
'Sparkles/Bling'. 
Grab your Glimmer Paper, Glitter and Foil and join in the fun.


My creation is a little outside the square. It's a bit of Sparkles & Bling...

It's 'Tamatoa' from Disney's Moana! Well, a caricature of this 'Shiny' guy. He has a song; 'Shiny', and is possibly the most awful of creatures. But with such presence. 
I had to get my (Retiring 😭) 'You're Sublime' stamp set  out and create this creepy crab.

*Tamatoa is a gargantuan coconut crab that hails from Lalotai, a realm inhabited by monsters. Tamatoa is known as a "beady-eyed bottom feeder", a social reputation he greatly despises. He covers his shell in gold, rare artifacts and treasures as a means to elevate his status, and this overcompensation soon became a crazed love for all things shiny.

'Shiny' is from the 'Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies'
I die cut the 'sunshine' & 'hope' dies in 'Gold Glimmer Paper' and made the 'y' from the 'hope' die and turned it upside down. I backed the Gold Glimmer with 'Basic Black' cardstock - die cut the same way.
Tamatoa's collection of sparkly 'Gold Sequins' looking very shiny too.

Those tentacles! A couple of thin strips of 'Perfect Plum' cardstock wrapped around a 'Stampin' Write Marker' to give them some movement.
The background is 'By The Shore DSP' stamped with (Retiring 😭) 'Gorgeous Grunge' stamp set and embossed with 'Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder' & 'Gold Stampin' Glitter'. Looking a little like Tamatoa's Lair.



Thankyou for visiting me today. I have unleashed my inner artist and I hope you have enjoyed my 'Tamatoa' as much as I had creating him.
Until next time. D x
