Hi everyone! Every month we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts and the theme of this month is ‘Stencils’. Head over to our Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a gift certificate to the store! The card I’m sharing today is an inspiration for the current challenge. I used several stencils from Lawn Fawn to create an ocean scene.
On my YouTube channel I have a process video available of this card, including the Copic coloring. Make sure to subscribe to my channel if you like watching my videos. When creating this card, I also made some happy accidents. That’s what you get you sleepy head 😉
For the background of the ocean, I used the emboss resist technique on the bubbles created with the Lawn Fawn Bubble Background stencil. I also created some subtle waves with the Hillside stencil and Yeti ink. In real life the waves are more noticeable than in the picture, such a shame I cannot share that with you all!
The bottom of the ocean I also created with the Hillside stencil. I love how the Lawn Fawn stencils can also be used to mask off the ink blended area!
In my stash I had a couple of ocean themed stamp sets, so I stamped a bunch of critters and started coloring. In the end I didn’t even use them all because it would get too crowded on the card. Lawn Fawn really has a bunch of great ocean themed sets which can be combined easily. The sets I used are Keep On Swimming, Ocean Shell-Fie, and I Like You (A Lotl).
As dimension is life, I adhered some images flat on the card, others with varying sizes/thicknesses of foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives. To mat the cards, I used Peacock cardstock from Lawn Fawn which I also used for the sentiment.
I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
