Under the Sea- A Mixed Media Card for a Color, Sketch and Doodling Challenge :-)



Hi Stampers!!

I had a chance to stamp last night and created a card using the CMCC79 Colour Me..! Striking Challenge along with the FabFri68 Sketch Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability MIX128 “Doodley-Doo” Challenge (see details here and gallery here).

Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the above sites- fabulous Design Team creations as well as gorgeous galleries and inspiration from all! 

To create this card:

Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Using the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge, add splatter with Marina Mist and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink.

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and mount the entire panel onto the Bermuda Bay card front.

Use an AquaPainter™ with Marina Mist and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and create a wash onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the panel and use Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink to stamp the coral image from By The Tide and the script stamp (re-inking and repeatedly stamping the script image) above the coral.

Use a paint brush to apply Titanium White Acrylic Paint and mount the panel onto Basic Black cardstock.

Stamp the seahorse and Nantucket images as well as the jellyfish using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.

Use the ¾” Circle Punch to punch out the Nantucket image and also punch a circle from Basic Black cardstock.  Split the Basic Black circle in half and adhere behind the Nantucket image.   Mount the Nantucket image onto the focal image panel.

Color the seahorse and jellyfish images with the AquaPainter™ using Marina Mist and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink.

Fussy cut the images,  add additional details with the Faber-Castell Pitt Pen White marker on the seahorses and Frost White Shimmer Paint for the jellyfish.

Mount the seahorses and jellyfish onto the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Use a Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Medium Black Marker to add the doodling by hand around the focal image panel.

Add the Rhinestones to finish off the card

Stamp Sets: By The Tide, From Land to Sea, Gorgeous Grunge, Express Yourself (retired hostess set)

Ink: Stāz-On Jet Black Ink, Bermuda Bay, Marina Mist; Faber-Castell Black and White Pitt Pen markers

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay

Accessories: AquaPainter™, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Titanium White Acrylic Paint, Rhinestones, ¾” Circle Punch


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- it is such an encouragement to me!  Have a wonderful day, my friends!
