At last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa, we used the Sea Life Dies – again!
From the previous week’s project, there were some leftover pieces from the Layering Diorama Dies. It seemed silly not to use them in another design.
So, rather than just fish, this design uses the seahorse.
Once again, I’ve also added a shape from the Smooth Sailing Dies, the seaweed.
The colours are also similar to before with Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party for the water.
Seaweed and coral are in Calypso Coral and Old Olive, with the fish in Pumpkin Pie.
My sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set. I would love to change it to ‘Best Fishes!’
After adding the sentiment and positioning the water pieces, seaweed and coral. It was time to concentrate on the seahorse.
Using Sponge Daubers, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron, I coloured the seahorse while it was still in the piece it was die-cut to. This die-cut shape is slightly different as it doesn’t cut all the way out, to allow you to use it in a variety of ways.
Once I had coloured it, I cut through the different points to release it. I then attached it using Dimensionals to raise it up, with the tail wrapped around a piece of coral.
The small fish are then placed at the top, by the sentiment.
Finally, some clear shapes from Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials are dotted around to look like bubbles.
