Under the Sea

Did you start singing along?! 🙂

Shimmery White Cardstock is an absolute favourite of mine! This cardstock has a beautiful, subtle shimmer and works really well for creating inked background techniques.

This technique immediately brought to mind an ocean scene! I used Sponge Daubers to apply Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizzaz Ink to my Shimmery White Cardstock. Then, using a clean Sponge Dauber, I dabbed rubbing alcohol onto the cardstock. I also used the fish from the Whale Done stamp set to add spots of alcohol, and then allowed it to interact and dry with the ink.

It creates a subtle “bubble” effect that makes a fun, underwater texture to the paper!

The Whale Done stamp set has perfect stamps for finishing a seascape that looks realistic.

Can you see the subtle bubble effects in the background?

I did some punch manipulation with the Label Me Fancy punch to get the label on this card! Be sure to check out Episode 33 of “Why Did I Buy This?” to get a step by step on this technique and learn how to create this new shape from a punch!

Have fun crafting!
