Swimming in the Ocean Greeting card


Hello Crafty Friends,

I am very excited to use the Sin City Stamps Nautical 2 Stamp Set because I am an avid cruiser and spend much time on the Caribbean Sea. (or at least I try to spend much time there, lol) This stamp set lends itself to ink blending, one of my favorite techniques. I hope you too will enjoy making cards with this stamp set.



Supplies:
   Sin City Stamps:
     Nautical 2 set
   Other supplies:
     Inks-in blues, greens, browns, pink
     blending tool
     Sentiment word die
     Seaweed die
     Foam tape
     sequins
     masking tape

Step 1:
Mask off edges of card base. Blend ink, using three shades of blue, in the center of the card front. Next flick/splatter water on the blended ink. This creates the water effect.  Do as much as you like.


Step 2:
Die cut the seaweed.
    

Step 3:
Using two shades of green and one brown blend color onto the seaweed die cuts.


Step 4:
Stamp and cut out the fish and seahorse.


Step 5:
Ink blend the seahorse and fish to your liking, creating a realistic look to the sea life.


Step 6:
Die cut the sentiment and assemble the pieces into an eye pleasing arrangement.  Use foam tape to add dimension and sequins to give the card a little sparkle.
Now your project is complete.


I think the possibilities are numerous with this stamp set and am looking forward to seeing all the creations you post on our Fan Page.
