Hi there :)
For today's card I have revisited the idea of using the MFT Balloon Strings background as water... you may remember I had seals bobbing about in the water last time :)
To make my ocean blue, I clear embossed the balloon strings on watercolour card and added a generous wash of water before dropping in watercolours in blues and aquamarines.
I cut a slit along one of the lines so I could tuck this jolly whale from Avery Elle's Swim Team into the ocean... he looks like he's surfacing to say hello and thank you :) I do love the Swim Team Elle-ments die set that compliments these stamps... it contains some useful shapes for any watery scene. I used the seaweed shaped dies to add white waves around the whale and the main border to make a choppy ocean...
Hehe... it looks like we've spotted him through a telescope out at sea .... and a very shimmery sea as well thanks to a good spritz of perfect pearls mixed with water over the water coloured ocean :)
This would be another embossing technique you could use for our current monthly challenge... have you played along yet?
Thanks for stopping by :)
