Good morning, everyone! It’s Holly posting today and I’m sharing this Oxide Jellyfish card with you. I’m switching days with Chrissy this week as she does not have access to a computer right now. I’ve been playing in some challenges on Splitcoaststampers, and one was to have a water technique with some sea life on it. I pulled out my P041 Japanese Fishing Scenes set because I wanted to play with the jellyfish stamp.
For my background, I smooshed three colors of distress oxide ink onto my craft mat – Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio. I spritzed them with water and then smooshed some white cardstock over the inks. I dried the first layer with my heat tool, and then I smooshed the cardstock back over the inks again. I repeated the drying and smooshing until my paper was covered. After the final drying, I sprayed some water into my hand and flicked it over the background and dried it again. I love how the background turned out.
I wanted the jellyfish to look like it was swimming in the watery background, so I stamped it with Faded Jeans distress oxide ink. It’s the perfect shade to go with the background. I glued this piece down onto a white card base and I added a die cut “hello” to the lower right side.
I hope you’ve been inspired by all our summery cards over the past few months. Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
