Hola!

Today I’m sharing a card I made with some images I’ve colored for The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. I’ve already shared these images on Instagram, but now I want to show you an ocean scene card I’ve made with them. At first sight, we have a simple beach scene, but when we open the card there is an underwater scene too!

I stamped the images on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. This paper has a different texture on each side, I used the smoother one. Then, I colored all the images with Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils. I used images from Lawn Fawn “On the beach”, “Sea Horsin’ Around”, “So Jelly”, “You are Sublime”, “Manateerific”, and “Lovable Legends” stamp sets and then I die cut everything using coordinating dies, except for the Kraken.

I don’t know if this kind of folding card has a specific name, but if you do, please, tell me because I’d love to know! I prepared a long piece of paper and scored it so when is closed it is a 4-Bar card. I blended Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean on the top of this card base to make the sky and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies to die cut some wavy panels from Bristol paper. I inked these panels to be the sand on my scene, using Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks and then I spritzed a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water. Next, I used Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies on a long piece of Bristol paper, blended Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio on it and flicked some water. I scored this panel and glued it along with the sandy hills to the card base.

Finally, I adhered all the images to the card and added some details to them: Sakura Black Glaze pen to the eyes and Glossy Accents to the windows of the submarine. Here you have a video of the folding/unfolding of the card:

This is one of those cards that turned out just how I had planned. I love it! Coloring all those images totally worth the effort 🙂

I’m entering this project into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #56 – Beautiful Beaches

Hope you like this card! Thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing day!
