Hi Tea Timers, it's DT Randy and welcome back to the blog. The new release is now in the shop and there are so many amazing sets! I am excited to share a new underwater scene I created using the new Fintastic Friends stamp and die set.
I first die cut out 3 card panels using the rectangle die in the Autumn Scene Cover Plate die set. I then took some diorama dies in my stash and cut out from 2 of the panels. You can create your own diorama cuts as well. All you need to do is draw a fun shape on the first panel and cut it out. Then you place that panel ontop of another panel and draw the similar shape but smaller and cut that out.
I blended Peacock Feathers, Salvaged Patina and Cracked Pistashio on the full panel. On the two panels that I cut out the diorama, I used the same colors on top but added Antique Linen on the bottom. I covered the bottom portion and splatted white water color over it. I then splattered the bottom portion with brown watercolor.
I stamped out my images and stamped the fish and the seaweed a second time. I then diecut them out using the coordinating dies.
You can use any color combination for the fish as it is so fun to mix and match colors. I used the following colors for the other aquatic animals:
- Whale: B91, B93. B95. B97, B99
- Dolphin: W00, W01, W02, W03, W04, W05
- Octopus: R20, R22, R24
To assemble my card, I used foam tape on each panel to add to the layers. I then used a combination of liquid adhesive and foam tape to attach all of the aquatic animals. To complete my card, I stamped the sentiment onto teal cardstock and die cut it using the coordinating die. I love that the coordinating die is included in the die set as well.
I hope you liked this tutorial today. If you like any of the sets that I used today, don't forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 for some savings on your next purchase.
