Winter blues got you down? Don’t worry, because the latest release from Joset will having you seeing sunny days and warm ocean hues!
Today I am playing around with the new Whale die set and and some watercolor to create this simple, yet summer fun card.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces from the Whale die set from some Watercolor Paper.
Step Two: Using either watercolors, or watercolor markers, color the die cut pieces.
Step Three: Using a waterbased ink you can blend, created a background of blue on a piece of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 4.25×5.5. I used my distress oxides in both Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.
Step Four: Using a stencil, created some texture on the background using a darker blue ink. I used Faded Jeans Distress Oxide through this circular stencil.
Step Five: Using both 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the die cut image to the background.
Step Six: Using the new Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set, add a sentiment. I used two different sentiments in blue ink. I used Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide.
Step Seven: Add the inked background to an A2 card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Eight: Spritz the background with some water to add some texture to the card, and add some extra inking around the edges to help ground the image.
Step Nine: Add some Transparent Crystal Craft Drops around the sentiment for a little extra bling.
I hope this card helps chase away your cold winter blues. Spring is just around the corner, but until then, your ocean hues are only a click away.
