Oceans of Fun

Today I have been inspired by the gorgeous mood board at the Scrapbook Boutique February Challenge. I  loved the colours and the definite beach mood that it conveyed.

I began by creating a sea background by clear embossing the MFT Whimsical Waves background, then sponging 3 ombre effect layers of colour using Altenew inks which were then spritzed with water. I die cut a  curved border strip to convey the image of sea foam as the sea hits the shore and then coated this with Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter paste. The three stamped images were coloured with Zig brush markers, fussy cut then coated with glossy accents to create dimension as well as to convey the glassy feeling of sea water. To create the effect of sand grains the chipboard letters were painted with Tim Holtz broken glass distress paint then ombre effect layered with 3 colours of ultrafine glitters before coating with glossy accents. Once the card was assembled I added water drops using Nuvo crystal clear.

Stamps: MFT Whimsical Waves background, Clear Impressions Sea Breeze, Flourishes Sea Side Life
Inks: Altenew Sea Glass, Ocean Waves and Caribbean Sky, Memento black
Dies: curved stitched borders, stitched rectangle
Other: Ranger Glossy Accents, Zig brush markers, watercolour paper, Nuvo Crystal Morning Dew, clear embossing powder, Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter paste, dark blue, mid blue and aqua ultrafine glitters, chipboard letters for Beach word, Tim Holtz Broken Glass Distress paint.
