Step 2: Next I colored my stamped images with copic markers in a variety of colors. I colored more than I would need to use on more projects! After coloring I die cut the images with my big shot machine.
Step 3: Using Lawn Fawn’s largest stitched rectangle die from the large set I first cut out a solid piece of cardstock as the mat for the card.
Step 4: I next used the largest die from the small stitched rectangles to cut out what will be the background to my scene. I cut two rectangles, the scene background and the sand portion to my scene.
Step 5: On the water color cardstock I used Tim Holtz distress ink to add color to the water portion of the scene and sand.
Step 6: Once the ink blending was complete, I flicked small water droplets on the water color paper and used a paper towel to pick up the excess ink. This creates the distressed look and leaves white/lighter spots on the card.
Step 7: I next used the Lawn Fawn hillside borders dies to create the sandbar. I cut two hills and used them together to create a dimensional sand area.
Step 8: Once I had all my pieces and components of the card planned out and die cut, I was ready to assemble my card! I first start by putting the solid colored die cut we made onto a card base using adhesive tape runner. To this I added the background that was created with the distress ink using more tape runner.
Step 9: At the bottom of the water scene I added the “sand” the first layer of the tan distress ink scene was put down with Tombow mono multi liquid glue, the dimensional portion was added with foam squares to lift it up. I use this dimension to hide bottoms of other stamped images.
Step 10: I then began to place the stamped images on the card, rearranging as needed until I found a scene I liked, I used foam tape on several items to pop them up in the scene (submarine, angler fish, bottom fish) and tombow mono multi glue on the other components (coral, seaweed, small fish, hearts, rock)
Step 11: I used the smallest die in the Lawn fawn small stitched rectangle set to cut out a white piece of cardstock where I stamped “You are my world”. To make this sentiment you use the Lawn Fawn You are Sublime Stamp set – I paired the “You are” and the “You light up my world” phrases to make a modified sentiment. When inking up my stamp I covered half of the stamp with tape and removed before stamping so only the “My world” would transfer.
Step 12: Lastly I added glossy accents to the submarine windows and let that dry for about 30-45 minutes.
