Under the sea card

Hello friends!

Time for another DT post for Cut it Up challenge! The theme is under the sea, so easy peasy!

I thought it was a good opportunity to play with a new technique for me to create an underwater background with bubbles effect and perfect to beat the heat of this summer!

I started with a white glossy CS. In a plastic glass, I added some liquid detergent and some blue tone spray colors. Using a straw created some bubbles and quickly covered up the glossy panel with bubble print as shown in the pic till satisfied with the results I achieved.

Next, I turned my attention to underwater elements to add to the card. I stamped all those tiny elements a few times, colored and fussy cut them.

Love the cute mermaid image, she is coloured with Polychromos pencil and this is my first attempt to play with these pencils. Added some clear crystal powder for more details to mermaid image.

 I stretched my stamp by stamping some bubbles from the same stamp set by masking seahorse image.

The ocean waves fussy cut background panel was created two times by stencilling on vellum and a white cardstock using distress inks and detailing with zig marker. Added some sparkles to the waves to add the reflection and more interest.
I wanted to frame my panel so I added a scalloped border die in white. Added the sentiment.
In the end, the mermaid and all the elements are lifted by using foam tape. I also added a few bubbles, sequins at the low bottom of the oceans in form of some treasure.

I really enjoyed getting messy making the different underwater background panels on this card with new experiments and stretching my stamps!
