Under the Sea - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Fans!

I hope you are having a fantastic summer.  I live in the Hilton Head area so we have a good number of tourist coming to visit.  And the biggest draw is the beautiful Atlantic Ocean!  So I thought I would do an ocean themed card inspired by our beautiful sea!

Here are the design steps:

1.  Use inks on watercolor paper direct to paper then use water and a stipple brush to move the ink around on the paper
2.  Distress the edges of the paper and use distress ink on the edges
3.  Use a stencil and translucent embossing paste to create the bubbles
4.  Glue Prills to the bottom of the card to create the sand
 5.  Use Kraft card stock and cut out the Cottage Cutz Sand Dollar and Sea Horse
 6.  Ink the Sand Dollar and Sea Horse then splatter with a dark brown ink

7.  Cut seaweed using the Under the Sea die and ink the seaweed.  Attach a piece of cheese cloth that has been lightly inked to the center of the card. Then attach all of the dies.  Last splatter the entire card with dark brown ink

I hope you take a walk outside and let nature inspire you!

  1. OMG!! I just discovered your blog (through Scrapping Cottage), and I am in LOVE with your cards ... not sure how I missed some of them. Your instructions are AWESOME!! I am definitely a new fan!!

    I was wondering if you could tell me what color Prills you used for this card? I LOVE how you used them. They are a new product to me, and it is hard to judge the colors online.

    Thank you for the help and inspiration!!
