Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!
Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!
I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!
She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.
I love that she added some sea creatures and ocean related images from The More We Get Together to complete her scene! These cute images easily go together with the mermaids and the overall look is flawless!
The sentiment “Let’s Go Exercising” is also from Let’s Catch Up!
Thanks Jo for this wonderful message! Speaking of, I believe my yoga session is long overdue!
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!
