Seahorse & Sea Turtle


It's Anja here. I have two cards for you today. I made a cute set with a Seahorse and a Turtle. 

 For this project I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Seahorse, Sea Turtle, Circle Set),

- Dye Inks,

- 2 white card bases (15x15 cm),

- white card stock for die cuts,

- water color paper (2 14,2x14,2 cm),

- acrylic paint sprays (blue shades),

- sentiment stamps,

- acrylic block,

- black pigment ink,

- white pigment ink,

- black pen,

- white pen,

- Wink of Stella glitter pen,

- heat gun,

- adhesive foam pads,

- paper glue. 

First I cut and colored the turtle. I used white pigment ink and a brush to emphasize some parts of the turtle. I also added a bit of glitter to it.

Next I cut and colored the seahorse.

Then I cut two paper stencils.

I put the stencil over the watercolor paper and sprayed it with acrylic spray paints. I used three shades of blue.

Next I removed the stencils and added a few drops of the lightest blue shade to add over the paper. I dried the paper with the heat gun.

After that I added some color to the edges of the background paper. I also stamped the sentiment.

When I had all the pieces ready I assembled the cards together. I added the turtle and the seahorse using adhesive foam pads for dimension. And my cards were done.

This is all from me for today. Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.
