Ocean Joy

I did this card for a challenge on Sunday where we pick a card by the Featured Stamper and CASE it. (copy and share everything.) To say we copy the card is not exactly correct, but we do take the elements of the card we love and we change the colours, and the subject matter etc. The point of the challenge is honour the stamper for the week. The card I picked to CASE is here. I changed the colours, made an ocean and added a dolphin, to honour Kendra, who is also on the Frantic Stamper Design Team that I am on. On to my card details, I used my aqua brush and 3 different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks to do my water. I used the deeper colour to sponge my dolphin, styled him and propped him up on foam dots so it looks like he is coming out of the water. To finish a few sequins and some Wink of Stella on the top of the waves and on top of the dolphin, which is hard to see in the picture. I wish you could see it, is is beautiful IRL. A fun card to make, thanks for having a peek today.

  1. Love that stenciled background Kia. Cute card!

  2. Oh, Kia, this is beautiful, and I love the ocean you've created using Distress Inks and water. It really is lovely, and your dolphin is fabulous! Having seen them myself, he is very realistic, and they surely do love jumping out of the water! Love the sentiment and always love your sequins. Beautifully done, and how wonderful to honor your friend and DT teammate, Kendra! I love her card too. Big hugs, sweet friend!

  3. this is so beautifully done Kia, :)
