Hello Sweetums - Oceans of Encouragement

 Rina here with an ocean themed card using the HelloSweetums “Oceans of Encouragement” stamp set.  I am having holiday crafting withdrawals, but I am also excited to start using non holiday color palettes! 

I created a background using Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass.  I added more texture to the background by splattering white paint.  I then used copic markers to color in my images.

I had planned to tuck the ocean critters into waves on my background, but I had a hard time covering up these little cuties.  Instead, I adhered them directly to the card making sure that the images faced different ways.  I stamped out the sentiment on a strip of white paper and cut a fishtail on the end.

I finished off the card using the Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust to add shimmer to the images.  I also added sequins for added shine.

Hope you try out this card, I absolutely adore the shark image, it is my FAVORITE!

Thanks for stopping by,
