Hello Newton’s Nook fans! I hope you are all having a great day. Who is ready for summer? I know a lot of you are still experiencing the cold climate and probably even have snow on the ground so here’s a little colorful, under-the-sea themed card that will brighten anyone’s day.
I started out by cutting a mask using Inkadinkado masking paper, and the Land Border dies by Newton’s Nook. I placed the mask onto my Bristol smooth white card stock, measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 so that I can mask the bottom edge, while I ink-up the top portion of the card. I used my distress oxide inks to ink up the background.
I flipped the mask and inked up the bottom portion of my card base with my Antique linen distress oxide ink. I sprayed my background with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel.
On another piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I stamped my images using different colorful inks. I cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I adhered all of my images onto my colored background. To finish my design, I stamped the bubbles using the stamp set with a darker blue ink, and added glossy accents to the fishies and the starfish. Here’s my card:
I really like how this card turned out! The glossy accents just made the fishies look a little bit more realistic.
I just love the sentiment on this card. I am sure you are all dreaming about the summer now, after seeing this card.
I hope you like my project today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Have an amazing day!
