The Cross Stitched and Dots upper panel was blended using Distress Oxide Ink Squeezed Lemonade. And with a sunray stencil, she created gorgeous sunray beams on top of that with the same ink, but this time adding a bit more pressure while blending to get the darker hue.
The wavy panel was blended using Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China. She then added some white pigment ink to extend those sunray beams into the ocean!
I love that she added an action wobbler for the blow fish to make it even more interesting! See the cute fish in action below!
Finally she added the sentiment, “You Blow Meow Away” to finish off!
She stamped a bunch of images from both sets and colored them up using bright summery colors. I love how the cool kitty is suntanning on the beach and at the same time, having all the cute creatures swimming in the ocean!
She used the largest die from the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays on her back panel for the wonderful boarder detail. She cut the stitched layers from several panels of Bristol smooth cardstock, and inked them up using Distress Oxide Inks.
I just love the splash of water and the watery inks on the cards for the added texture.
She used the sentiment, “Seas the Day” from the Summer Sunshine stamp set on the sand layer then adhered all of the pieces together.
Thank you so much Davina for this lovely scene. It is so vibrant and lively! I really love how she composed her card into a split level scene where you can see both the beach and the underwater!
She started with a pop-up shadow box die from Lawn Fawn as the basic structure of this box. She added some yellow patterned papers to the faces of the box as accents. I love how she removed the front flap, cut a panel at the front of the box and added a piece of acetate as the window.
I love how she positioned the cute images at different depths; some were just behind the window, while some were adhered at the very back. The kitty blowfish near the centre portion was the focal point and she choice a sentiment “You Blow Meow Away!” – so cute!
She also added a piece of wavy cardstock in front of the blowfish as if it was just swimming to the surface! The whole card came together so nicely!
We hope you enjoy Anja‘s pop-up box card! Thank so much Anja, your card is so amazing!
