I am so excited to be part of the Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop as a guest designer. I feel honoured to be part of such a gorgeous celebration.
You should have arrived from my talented friend, Laura Volpes’s blog and I am the last stop for today. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog!
For my first card I applied Distress Inks gently on Bristol Smooth cardstock, then through the Brush Stroke Waves stencil I reapplied the same inks once more. Before removing the stencil I sprayed Iridescent Shimmer Mist on it for a subtle sparkle. Until my background was drying I stamped and coloured the images from the Under the sea stamp set using Copic markers. I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
I also inked up a stitched hillside border with distress inks, splattered some Gathered Twigs and Antique Linen inks on it to look like sand. Before assembling the card I white heat embossed the sentiment on the top. I decided to make this card really festive by adding the present and the little birthday hat from the Shell-ebration stamp and die set.
As a finishing touch I emphasized the eyes of the fish with a black glaze pen and added a bit of glossy accents to some details. I also scattered a bunch of Clear confetti to look like bubbles.
For my second card I die cut a Stitched Creative window in the middle of a white cardstock, and once more from light grey cardstock. I adhered a piece of an alcohol ink background to a white card base and popped up the window with the inlaid frame using 3D foam tape.
I carefully white heat embossed the sentiment in the middle window and adhered the sea critters using 3D foam squares for ore dimension. A few Iridescent bubbles, glossy accent and white gel pen details finished this card off.
After seeing the Seashell Shaker die I just had to make an underwater shaker card too. I die cut a white cardstock piece with the rectangle from the Dotted Patterns Set 1 with the Shell die in it. I added a piece of transparency to the back of it and made the tunnel for the shaker part with 3D foam tape. I used a small piece of the alcohol inked background adhered to a blue violet mat and added Crystal Clear, Silver Foil Confetti and a bit of the Shimmering Ice Fusion sequin mix.
When my shaker piece was all sealed I decorated the front with the little turtle from the Shell-ebration set. The sentiment I white heat embossed on a black banner. A bit of glossy accent, some clear shimmer on the present and black glaze pen on the eyes made it finished.
