My first card for the new year!! I’m excited to see what the new year will bring.
I created this card for MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #522, and this Friends Forever stamp set from Clearly Besotted is just adorable and perfect for what I wanted to create. It totally reminds me of Finding Nemo; hence, the inspiration for the title Fish are Friends…Not Food.
I started stamping the shark and fish, the shell, and the seaweed to the card base. I masked the images, and started ink blending. I used Gina K Designs Sea Glass, Tranquil Tea, and Blue Denim for the ocean and Sandy Beach for the Sand. I splashed some water onto the blended ink to add some bubbles. I removed the masked images and colored them with Artist’s Loft Watercolor Dual Tips Markers. I stamped some bubbles and added some Ranger Glossy Accents to make it pop up a little and make it more bubble-like. The sea shell, seaweed, and bubble were all from the Tentacuddles Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. I used Picket Fence Studio Current of Fish Stencil to stamp in some fish shadows, and added some dots on the sand it make it less flat. Lastly, I used my Cricut to cut a scalloped heart to put around the shark and fish.
Thank you for stopping by and Stay Safe!
