Just Keep Swimming Ocean Scene Card

Happy Thursday! I hope you have been having a great week! This is Jeanette and I am sharing a fun sea creature card with you today! I was able to incorporate a lot of the sea-themed items that have been released recently!

The card-base is a standard A2 size.  I then cut out an A2 sized panel and centered the larger die in the Wavy Nested Frames Die Set over it and cut out the shape.  I mounted the panel over top my card-base using some foam tape.  This raised it slightly and creates a window effect.

I used the inside shape to create an ocean scene.  I first sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the entire surface as a base.  I then placed the Making Waves Stencil  over top and sponged on Mermaid Lagoon.  I then popped this into the opening using regular adhesive. I wanted this to be inset.

I die-cut some of the awesome shapes in the Build-an-Ocean Die Set out of some plain white card-stock.  I added them into the frame to fill it in a little.

The cute critters were colored with various Copic Markers and then adhered into my little ocean scene.  I have listed the markers used below :) I did add a few white accents dots onto the sea-critters as an added highlight.

The sentiment is from set and was added to the front of the card using some crisp black ink.

Beach Retreat!

Happy Sunday Everyone! Iris here today with a CAS watercolor card showcasing the New Beach Retreat clear stamp set
This is a wonderful and versatile set and makes for a quick card. It is also ideal for watercolor beginners because of the simple scene. 

I stamped on the back of a Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
To color the image I used my Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils from Faber Castell.
The sentiment is included in the set.

I used a black card base and layered the image onto a piece of the Mermaid designer papers

For a bit of bling I finished off my card by adding some gemstones. 

Here is a list of all the Whimsy goodies I used on my card:

Mermaid Birthday

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

So, you've seen the fab release this month, right? Oh. My. Word. The mermaids! And not one, but loads. For this post, I had to choose one and I've gone with Mermaid Birthday. These girls had me itching to colour as soon as I saw them.

And you can see why. Isn't she lovely? I've coloured her with Copics. And here's a little trick for the tail. When you're done, add a few random (I know it's hard to be random!) dots with a white gel pen. It just gives your colour work a little lift there.

There's some other scrumptious stuff happening on this card, let's talk about that! Mermaid Paper Pack. The colours. Oh my. Swoon. Totally loving the pink and yellow together.

I've also used the You're Birthday Clear Stamp Set, the Birthday Word and Shadow Die Set and finished off with some Winter Wishes Sparkletz. LOVE these!
