Oxide Jellyfish

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!

    I spotted this when I was checking the DTGD entries. Holly, it’s beautiful. A really wonderful watery creation and such an ethereal looking jellyfish.
