An Underwater Scene with the New Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide

Hi everyone! The new Deep Blue Corners stamp from Clearly Besotted was the perfect match for the new Distress Oxide Uncharted Mariner. I’m really loving this new color, and how beautifully it reacts with water!

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Travel”. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

The Deep Blue Corners image I stamped on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Desert Sand ink and colored it with Copic markers:

  • Greens: YG17, YG13, YG11
  • Yellow: Y26, Y18, Y13, Y11
  • Orange: YR18, YR15, YR12
  • Reds: R35, R32, R30
  • Purples: BV02, BV00, BV0000
  • Rock: BG93, BG96, W4, W2, W0

With Cutter Bee scissors, I fussy cut the image, leaving a white border.

For the water part of the background, I ink blended Distress Oxide Uncharted Mariner and Tumbled Glass in a gradient. To get a distressed and water look, I splattered it with smaller and larger drops of water. I really love how much this added to the background. For the sand portion, I used the Hillside stencil and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Antique Linen. These two colors are my go to inks for sand.

Out of white cardstock, I die cut a frame with rectangle dies. I adhered the acetate to it, and also put foam tape behind it to pop it up. Inside the shaker part, I added Iridescent Moonshine, and Spring Fling sequins which are perfect for an underwater theme. After I was happy with the amount of sequins, I closed of the shaker and put my colored image on top.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
