{Spotlight Project} Shirley Makes a Custom Phone Cover



I treated myself to a new phone (I was well overdue for one!!), and I bought a clear cover so that I could customise it with my own artwork using this great new stamp club set, Scribbly Splattery Grunge. Look at all those fabulous elements!


I got the idea after seeing a quick video on Facebook with glitter paper but I thought it would be nice to use my original artwork.


I started off by sponging my card with Distress Inks.  I wanted to use the brightest colours so that I've got half a chance of finding the phone in the bottom of my bag!


Then I placed the cover on the card, moving it around till I found the portion I wanted to use.


I drew around the template/insert that came with the cover, then flicked water over the area, and once that was dry I started to stamp all those lovely images.  Next time I'll flick the water first, then find the area that I want to use, because I liked the splattered area to the left, but I'd already drawn my shape!


Added some white highlights with a gel pen and carefully trimmed inside the lines.


Popped it into the case and traced the hole for the camera, removed it and cut that out.


Then popped the finished article back into the case.  Voila!


I love that I'll be able to have a new-look cover whenever I feel like it :)
