SSS Ocean Background

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a happy weekend.
Today I have three ocean-themed cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.

I made watercoloured ocean backgrounds with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress reinkers – I loooove this blue combo!!

So many crafty friends love my Mermaid 3D standing card I made last month so I used the Be A Mermaid set once again. :D

To make watercoloured ocean background, I fixed the edge of the watercolour paper with purple tape first. I then applied water to the paper before watercolouring. I lightly coloured with Tumbled Glass Distress reinker, then added blue ink splatters. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using A2 sized Basic Rectangle die.

I heat embossed mermaid tails & waves from the Be A Mermaid set in white, coloured them with Distress inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies:
Red mermaid tail: (from bottom to top) Victorian Velvet, Festive Berries, Tattered Rose and Fossilized Amber
Green mermaid tail: Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Fossilized Amber.
I mounted them on white card base, decorated the card with April Showers sequins and Clear Droplets.

For my second card, I used the Anchor die & the Anchors Background stamp. I made watercoloured sea background using Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress reinkers. Once it was dry, I trimmed it using the Wonky Rectangle die. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the Anchors Background stamp, stamped onto watercoloured panel, then lightly touched the stamped images using water brush. For the centre of the card, I die cut the Anchor from thick white cardstock, wrapped it using natural twine, adhered it using foam tape.

For my last card today, I used the Lighthouse die & the In The Round stencil. To give the wave effect, I used the Circle Masks Stencil set. I placed the circle stencils onto A2 sized watercolour paper panel, then lightly traced circles using pencil in the order of small to large sized circle. I then coloured according to circle lines using Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress reinkers.

To express breaking waves, I laid the In The Round stencil onto watercolour panel, and then applied white embossing paste. :D
