A Bit of Aqua

I'm getting ahead of myself at the moment, but I wanted to do these because aqua is a colour I really enjoy working with. They're for the DoCrafts colour swap in June (turquoise/aqua).
The top one is a stamped image and fusible film background. I love the way the fusible film has turned out on this one. I didn't get on with it the first few times I tried, but am glad I persevered.

The second one is Friendly Plastic with mesh, wire, gems and accent beads on a stamped background with a bit of shimmer spray. I'd originally intended to use the Friendly Plastic piece on the fusible film background, but when I put them together I found that the background was a bit overpowering and took the eye away from the Friendly Plastic, so I decided on a simpler background with the Friendly Plastic and a small stamped image with the fusible film so that the background is the main feature. These were great fun to do!
