Have a Whale of a Time


Hello and welcome! DT Annalisa with another card I created using the brand new release! For my card, I experimented with watercolour and used the Fintastic Friends and Beach Buds stamp and die sets for this underwater-themed card.

I used my A2 Layering dies to cut down a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock 4 5/16 by 3 3/4 inch panel. I pressed some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto my glass mat and sprayed it with a bit of water. I added some clean water with a paintbrush to the water colour panel and added some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink with my paintbrush. This created the water background for the scene. I also added some water bubbles and splatter.

A big thanks to Jenn Shurkus and Lawn Fawn and their 'Create with Us' series for the inspiration and how-to for this watercolour technique. As a perfectionist, I struggle with water colouring, but Jenn shows you how in this terrific 'pool party' class which you can watch anytime on replay.

I stamped (with Ink on 3 Blackout detail ink) and coloured (with Copics) the images and then die-cut them with their coordinating dies. I heat embossed the sentiments onto black cardstock using white Alabaster ultra fine embossing powder by Brutus Monroe. I then die-cut the sentiments out with their coordinating dies. I really like the wavy dies in the Beach Buds coordinating dies set!

I added foam tape to the sentiments, whale and dolphin and adhered them to the panel. I used liquid glue for the remainder of the elements.

The A2 card base was created using light blue card stock. I added the sea panel to this with foam tape.

I added glossy accents to the whale, small fish and water bubbles to complete the card.
