MFT Beach Buds

Happy Sunday crafty friends! I am currently on vacation and therefore posting at odd times lol! Had some time this morning so I am sharing this one layer three panel card featuring MFT Stamps, Distress Oxide Inks and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.


I started by cutting my Bristol Smooth Cardstock to 5.5 x 12 and marked at 4 inches on the longest side.  I then stamped all of my images on the panel as well as on masking paper. I cut all of my masks and placed them on my fish. I masked the bottom of the ocean with PostIt tape and then used the Hero Arts Waves stencil with a mix of Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides. I removed the stencil and went over the panel again with the same inks but with a light hand to soften the background.


I used my Distress Sprayer to add some fun texture and it also added to the "water" feel.  I then removed the mask for the bottom and place it where the ocean meets the "floor" and used Gathered Twigs and Antique Linen Ditress Oxide Inks. Once the inking was all done I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and colored all of my images.


Once all of that was complete I white embossed the fish bubbles and took away some of the color in the centres with my water brush. To make the look a little more dimensional I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bubbles. I chose the MFT Hooray die with a mix of black cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Teal Glitter cardstock. I scored my lines at four inches with my Score-pal and folded it over. I finished off the project with some white gel pen detail.
