Ocean Pals – keep swimming

Hello once again. I have been playing with the MFT ‘Ocean Pals‘ stamp and die cutting set this weekend – in between going to the Doncaster Race Course ‘Crafting Live’ event.

I smooshed and ink blended a few backgrounds with several blue Distress Oxides, adding several layers, air drying between layers. I then cut out a circle – cut the bottom off to match the current CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge – then die cut that circle with the MFT Horizontal Snow Drifts.

I placed those pieces back into a circle shape using 3D foam pads, but wanted some white to show between the layers, so I off-set them. The blue circle alone was too – well – blue!

I stamped the little fishies onto water-colour card, then coloured them with my Zigs. I used 2 or 3 of each colour to get some dimension in the fishies. After adding them, I took a sentiment from Hero Arts Colour Layering Gold fish, which I stamped, layered with another piece of blue, and splattered with some to stop it being so white.

As the sun is shining again, I took a photo to show the dimension I added when putting the card together.
