Hello there, I am super excited today as I am guest designing with Sunny Studio. They make some of the cutest ever stamps and today I am using the adorable Oceans of Joy set, along with the new Stitched Scallop Dies which make fabulous waves.
I started off by stamping the images from the Oceans of Joy set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using Copic Markers. They were die cut using the coordinating dies. I then created a background for my sea by taking a piece of watercolour paper and blending over Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed this quite liberally with water and then removed some of the colour with a paper towel. This gave a nice mottled effect which is what I was after. I stamped the sentiment, included in the set, towards the top of this panel.
I die cut a frame from white cardstock and also some waves using the Stitched Scallop Dies and some blue vellum. I used blue vellum from one of the Hero Arts MMH kit, so I apologise that I do not have a link for it but you could always use normal vellum and swipe some ink over it to create the colour. I varied the height of these waves and then adhered them to the base with glue tape around the edges.
I then added the frame piece on top with foam tape. I sewed in some strings for the balloons with white embroidery floss and then added the critters and balloons with a combination of tape runner and foam tape. To finish off, I added glossy accents to the purple and green balloons.
To see how I created the card, you can watch the video below:
