Swimming By to Say Hi

Time for some beachy fun.
Today, I am using the new stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called 

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I took a piece of white cardstock and placed the Frothy Waves stencil over that.  I inked it up with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.  To help add some variation in the colour of the waves, I inked randomly with some Blueprint Sketch DOX ink.
  • Next, I used the Waffle Flower Die-Postage Collage and die cut the stenciled panel out.
  • I placed the panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
  • I glued it onto a piece of white cardstock, then used some foam tape to add it to an A2 sized card base.
  • I stamped the little sea creatures in my Misti and coloured them with my Copic markers.
  • I cut them out and popped them over the wavy background with some more foam tape.

Here is the stencil I used:

I adore sea themed cards, and I really love yours. It was a great idea to use the postal collage this way. Love your little sea creatures in their bright colors in the waves. Thanks so much for playing with us at Time Out.
