I started out by inking the whale and sentiment from Paper Smooches
Briny Blue and 'You Did It' from Clearly Besotted - Let's Roll using
Versafine Black ink before heat embossing with clear embossing powder.
Using Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass
I've watercoloured the background allowing the colours to merge slightly before
spritzing water splashes on it. The shaker frame is made with an MFT Die-namics
Stitched Square Die and filled with beads and sequins from my stash.
The theme over at CASology this week is Aquatic so I'm heading
over there with this card too.
I was quite late pulling these cards together this week due to
being unwell with a stinking cold and loads of cleaning and clearing from
the numerous workmen around the house who have been finishing up this week
so I'm not too sure about the next two which I made for our daughter.
One's a bit conservative and the other a bit of a joke!
For this one I started out by heat embossing the 'Congratulations' sentiment
from Uniko: All Occasion Sentiments and 'You're a Super' from Clearly Besotted
Superstar stamp sets in Hero Arts white embossing powder before masking off the
area beneath the sentiments. Using 'hot' coloured distress inks in Mustard Seed, Wild Honey
and Barn Door I've inked over the sentiment then used some glitter card stock to cut
several stars using a Memory Box die set and some mini pearls to accent.
... and last but not least this one uses another Uniko set - Explosion
and I used some fun and jokey sentiments from the same set plus the
'You Did It' from Clearly Besotted Let's Roll.
The images and sentiments are all heat embossed using either Hero Arts Clear,
WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle or WOW Metallic Brass Sparkle.
To add some extra details I've gone a bit mad with a white gelly roll pen!
The black panel is die-cut using MFT Die-Namics Inside-Out Diagonal
Stitched Rectangle STAX
