How is your summer? I dream of some sea waves around me, really :) This dream inspired me to create a very funny card with the cat diving among some corals or sea weed with different fish. So relaxing, isn't it? ))
So...I'd like to begin with the fact that those corals or sea weed were made with Bare Tree Wide stamp by So Suzy. Yes, it's a tree stamp. But I like to imagine it to be smth different.
First found some interesting paper in my stash with fish and stuff. It's Scrapberry's paper collection about Basik the cat. So I cut the images out with my scissors and colored with Chameleon pens.
Then I took different distress inks to create under the sea background:
For the water: Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire.
For the sand: Walnut Stain.
I sponged all those colors in several layers, sprinkled with water, tapped with a paper towel and applied some more inks until I liked the result.
When the background was ready I took a stamp with a MISTI tool and stamped it partially at the bottom and both sides of my panel using different distress inks.
Then I adhered the images, some with liquid glue and some with foam tape for dimension.
The final touch was to stick down some sparkly sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope this post was was inspiring and dreamy :)
Have a nice day!
