Fintastic Life...

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
Today we're continuing our under the sea adventure!

For this weeks creation, I decided to go super simple.  A white card base, some Distress Ink, along with some detailed fish images and a fun sentiment made this a super quick and easy card.  

I usually struggle with a clean and simple card, but I think it turned out swimmingly...


I've flicked some water droplets onto the card before I adhered the fish embellishments and because Ranger Distress Ink reacts with water, you are able to remove some color by blotting it off with a tissue.  I thought it gave the card a beautiful water effect.  

Here's a bit of a closer look...


These beautiful fancy tailed fish have been colored with my Spectrum Noir colored markers and have then been adhered to the card with pop dots.  I've given them a hint of shimmer with some Diamond Stickles.  And of course, I could not resist using the fun sentiment with these two beauties!

I hope you've enjoyed today's post!  Be sure to head over to the Heartfelt Creations blog for more magical ocean themed creations!  

Until next time...

Project Supplies and Instructions
 HCPC-3739 Under the Sea Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-799 Under the Sea Die
HCPC-3740 Heartfelt Wishes Cling Stamp Set

Other Products Used: white textured card stock, smooth white card stock, foam tape, Stickles - Diamond, BigShot die cutting machine, VersaFine Black Ink, MISTI, water, blending tool, Ranger Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, and Salty Ocean, Spectrum Noir Markers - OR1, OR2, OR3, pop dots, paper towel

Create a 5"x7" card base using smooth white card stock.  Trim a piece of textured white card stock just slightly smaller than the card base front.  Using a blending tool, working in a circular motion, cover the portion of the textured card stock as shown using different blue colored inks until desired hue and look is achieved. Using finger tips, flick a few drops of water onto inked background and lightly dab off using a paper towel.  The ink will lighten and then leave water spots resembling bubbles.  Repeat until you achieve desired effect. Stamp fish images onto smooth white card stock using black ink.  Color using alcohol markers.  Apply fish to card front where desired and add sentiment using black ink. Adhere card front to base using foam tape. Add Stickles to fish for some shimmer.
