The Sea Is Calling

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and after celebrating Christmas in July for the past week, I'm going back to my happy place, Under The Sea!!! This is a 3 day Hashtag Driven Hop that I am participating in with friends from the Handmade Happiness Facebook Group. We will have different projects each day, with a new Hashtag each day as well. Today's hashtag for the hop is #THURSDAYUNDERTHESEA
 Some will be doing videos, some Instagram or Blog only. I will be posting on Blog and Instagram. And now for my project.

Today I am using this adorable stamp set from The Maker's Movement. The set is called Beach Vibes, and I'm having fun it.
Beach Vibes

This was probably the easiest card I have made in a long time. And here is how it was done
  1. First I knew I had this pretty paper Iridescent Shimmer Paper in my scrap box, and had to find it. 
  2. I added double side adhesive to the back of the paper, first to make it a little stiffer to work with, and second because i knew I was going to adhere it to a black panel.
  3. The panel was cut to 3.75" x 5" and adhered to the black panel which is 4" x 5.25". 
  4. These panels were then adhered using tape runner, to a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. I use Recollection 110 lb Cardstock for my bases currently, and am quite happy with it.
  5. Using a stamp platform, I stamped the sentiment at the top of my panel using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. 
  6. I used an acrylic block to stamp the 3 cute fish and bubbles also using the VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. 
  7. After allowing the ink to dry, I used Nuvo Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops to add color to the fish, and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops  to the bubbles. 
  8. After allowing to dry for a few hours my photos were taken and project was complete.
