Under the Sea


Hello and Welcome
Today's card is featuring this beautiful stencil called Big Seaweed.  
It is part of a series of stencils released this month featuring a beach/ocean theme.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a white cardstock panel and laid the Big Seaweed stencil over my paper.
  • I decided to ink it up using some Brusho, so I sprinkled a few onto a piece of acetate, sprayed with water to activate, then using a baby wipe, I inked over the stencil by dipping the wipe into the wet ink and pressing over the stencil.  The Brushos give such vibrant colours to anything.  Be sure not to use a lot as they go a long way.
  • When the panel was dry, I used a blending brush to add some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and then I splattered with my black Posca pen.
  • Next, I used a circle die and cut it from the center of the inked panel.
  • I placed the circle into my Misti and stamped the sentiment near the bottom of the circle.
  • I stamped the little fish from a set by Lawn Fawn, die cut them out and coloured them with the left over Brushos on the acetate sheet and a wet paintbrush.
  • I glued the stenciled piece onto a heavy white card base, then pop dotted the circle back into place.
  • I pop dotted the little fish over the sentiment as well.

Here is the stencil I used:
