May 30 – Anna Maria
Hi everyone! Anna Maria here to show you a simple way to add some “water” to your card 😉
I have colored the cute seahorse from the clearstamp set Beach Day Buddies. I have used Copics: E0000, BG10, BG15, YR00, YR02. Then I take a siplock bag and fill it with hair gel and some glitter.
Then I do the background with a textstamp from the same clearstamp set and use the blending tool to the edges with some distress inks pads. I also stamp bubbles around the edges. I cut out a hole in my cardbase with a die and I also made a frame with the same die. Here you can se the plastic bag with gel in, if you want a darker “water” you can put some refill ink as well.
And here is the finished card. I have pushed the gel to one side so you can see the image clear. This is a really fun card to do and to get, and children love these cards!
A close up on the embellishment, I have used seashell from the beach and some stained cheesecloth to get a beach feeling. In the little glass bootle is actually some sand… 😆
I hope you get inspired to do this card and what a great way to send your flotsam to your friends from the summer vacation. Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you a great holiday!
