Seas the Day

Hello to you. Kia here with you today to share this fabulous stamp and die set by Colorado Craft Company, along with the background stencil by Gina K Designs. To get a bit of a different look for this card I first did smooshing using Neenah cardstock and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide along with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks.

Putting down the dry background piece on my work surface I added the stencil over the piece securing it in place. Using a domed foam blending tool along with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink I pounced the tool up and down lightly to fill the card piece with ink, which created beautiful dimensions and further textures. While I had the tools out I also did a piece just using the stencil for the inside of my card.

In my mini Misti using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black I stamped the images, then proceeded to colour using Copic markers in the following colours: The Birds B000, B41, B26 and Y13, R17 on the beaks. The posts are done using E42, E47 and Y19 with C00 and C1 on the Starfish along with B26 dots.

Using the coordinating die, I die cut the pieces with my Gemini Jr. machine. I attached the background piece to my card front using Art Glitter glue, along with the piece I did for the card inside. On the inside piece I also stamped using the beautiful sentiment included in the set.

On the card front I attached the die cut piece using foam strips, including the extra Starfish. I then stamped the sentiment “Seas the Day” using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

To finish with a bit of sparkle I added Pinkfresh gems in Ombre, being silver and blue gems, which are so pretty.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today, and look forward to seeing you next Friday.
