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!
All of the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she used the slimline card in its portrait orientation so that she can arrange her scene in a tiered manner!
She die cut two slimline panels, and one of which had two windows for her shaker element. I love the beautifully blended turquoise tones on her card panels. Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink was used on the back panel and Peacock Feather on the top panel.
I love the adorable seal on the ice berg floating at the very top with its thumbs up! As you look further down, you will see a bunch of adorable sea creatures including some tiny fishes, cuttle fishes and even a jelly fish!
Other accessory images like the seaweed, coral reefs and sea shell, just make the scene so much fuller and cuter!
To finish off, she added white gel pen highlights. Thank you Anja for this fun and awesome creation!
She added acetate to the two smaller frames to create the shaker windows. The adorable underwater creatures were from The More We Get Together stamp set. The pair of cuttle fishies formed the main focal point and the sentiment “Wanna Cuttle?” is just the perfect match!
She also used a tiny bubble image from the Hot Mama stamp set for some extra detail on the seaweeds. I just love this bright and vibrant card! Check out her video tutorial below or over on our YouTube Channel.
Thank you so much Jo for your wonderful inspiration!
While masking-off her colored images on the card, her background was beautifully ink blended using Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. She splattered water over the panel to create some nice texture.
Laura made her own pull tab and rotating mechanism, so that the blow fish would move up and down, while the seal’s arm would lift up at the same time with its thumbs up! Such a clever design!!

Thank you so much Laura for your out of the world inspiration! Double thumbs up!
