It is Monday again, time for a new Inky Paws Challenge #75. The theme this time is Cute Animals.
For my card today I used the recently released Papa bear stamp and die set. I stamped, coloured an die cut the images using Zig Clean Colour Real brush markers. I used Bristol Smooth cardstock as I find it helps the blending of the Zig markers. After die cutting them I added some white gel pen details, used a black glaze pen on their eyes and also some Tonic Nuvo Drops (walnut) on their noses for more dimension.
Until they were drying I worked on the background. I started with sponging Squeezed Lemonade distress ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I took the Sunray stencil (MFT) and blended some Wild Honey and Mustard seed Distress inks. Before removing the stencil I sprayed Tsukineko Shimmer Mist for a subtle sparkly effect.
For the waves I blended Salty ocean and Faded Jeans distress inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock and spritzed them with water. I let it dry for 30sec and then I dabbed it off with a paper towel. I blended some more ink and spritzed again. When the panel was dry I die cut 3 waves with a Mama Elephant die set.
I used 3D foam tape to assemble the scene as I wanted it to have a lot of dimension. The sentiment is from the Aloha Newton stamp set, stamped on the background with black ink.
As a finishing touch I used some yellow jewels from Lucy’s Little Things and scattered them around the images.
