By The Tide...........Embossing Resist, Sponging and Watercolor Techniques

Hi Stampers!

I absolutely had so much fun creating this card. I couldn't wait to share it with all of you! This card uses several techniques---Emboss Resist, Sponging with ink, and Water coloring. I've been beginning to miss our Hawaiian ocean lately and so it was easy for me to get into oceanography frame of mind.

I created the ocean scenery by taking a piece of Whisper White card stock and die cut it with the third largest oval from Stampin' Up!'s Ovals Collection. Once that is cut, stamp the coral image using Versa Mark and heat emboss it using Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. Wipe the image over with a napkin to complete the process. To create the ocean background, start with sponging Sahara Sand keeping the color on a slight diagonal on the paper. Next, I sponged Pool Party, then, Bermuda Bay and finally Island Indigo. Once your piece is all inked up, layer it on a piece of Pool Party card stock cut with the second largest oval from the collection. Now, to create the fish.....I stamped the image using Stazon On Black Ink of a piece of Water Color paper. I used So Saffron and Marina Mist colored ink and colored it using my Aqua Painter. Once it was all colored I just cut the image out with my paper snips and attached it to my ocean scene using a Stampin' Dimensional. The background is done with Island Indigo embossed with the Argyle embossing folder layerd on to Bermuda Bay.

Hope you enjoyed this card share. Here is the full list of all the supplies used to create this card.:
