Greetings! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here sharing a few fishes…. I mean wishes! I am using the new Sunny Studio Stamps Ocean View stamps and coordinating dies to create this 5″ X 7″ ocean scene card. To make the card, I started by applying Distress Oxide Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Antique Linen, blending the colors together in between. I splattered water over the ink and blotted it with a paper towel to lift some ink for a splotchy look.

I stamped all the elements from the stamp set and die cut them.  I colored them using the following colors:

  • Greens: YG67, YG03, YG00, G89
  • Browns: E47, E44, E55, E50, E43, E42
  • Blue-Greens: BG72, BG13, BG11, BG10
  • Blues: B00, B000
  • Orange-Yellows: YR68, YR65, YR00
  • Reds: R89, R29, R17, R05
  • Yellows: Y21

I added a sweet rose pattern print to the umbrellas. Once all the images were colored, I placed them over the ink-blended background, to create the foreground scene. I attached the two clouds, the crab, and beach chair/umbrella using Scrapbook Adhesives foam tabs to make them stand out.

I added specks of black and white on the sand using a white gel pen and a black fine-tip marker. Lastly, I stamped the phrase in the lower corner from the stamp set, Inside Greetings Congrats. I changed the “W” to an “F” for fun and to fit the theme.
