Hey Heffy Doodlers!
It’s Kelly Martin here!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today to enjoy a little time “Under the Sea!”
I recently stamped out a bunch of images from the Oceans of Love set and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen markers. So after I used the coordinating die to cut them out, I knew it was time to assemble them into cards!
So if I have taken the time to focus on coloring some beautiful or cute images, I usually shy away from elaborate backgrounds, because I want those images to really shine. That’s why I kept the backgrounds in both of my cards today relatively simple. For this card, I just cut down a piece of Yupo Paper and applied some teal and green alcohol inks over it.
I adhered my alcohol ink panel on to a piece of Cookie Monster cardstock and then glued that down to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.
After applying foam adhestive to my images, I just assembled them on to my card in an ocean scene. I then used the same stamp set and coordinating die to create the sentiment, and applied that to my card with foam adhesive as well.
To finish off this card, I took some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents and just squeezed it on to my card in different places to create the look of sparkly waves!
For my second card, I started off by stamping some of the smaller images with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink on to the front of a cut and socred 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base. I then used some of my leftover Cookie Monster cardstock and then a scrap piece of patterned paper I had in my stash to create the middle strips.
To create the ink blended panel, I just trimmed down a piece of white cardstock and applied Squeezed Lemonade and Broken China Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I splattered some water droplets on to the panel for added texture and then applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to create the look of bubbles.
I used liquid glue to adhere my colored images down to my ink-blended panel and then stamped and cut the same sentiment from the same stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed these cards and thanks again for stopping by today!
