Lost Treasure | ft. Lawn Fawn "Duh-nuh"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today's card came together while I was playing around with some new things and trying out a couple new techniques. If there were a do over, there are a few things I would do differently, but overall I think it turned out pretty well.
There isn't really a category for this card to fit into, but sometimes that is okay. Sometimes it is about the creativity and the process and the art of it all.
To begin, I stamped the left shark from Lawn Fawn's "Duh-Nuh" stamp set, on to 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then used the Mirror Stamping technique to get the shark on the right. Once I have played around with this technique I'll do a full post about it.
I then stamped and masked the treasure box, coins, diamond and fish and then used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Ink for the ocean, Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs of the sandy bottom and a bit of Ground Espresso for the shadow under the chest.
After that was completely dry I used the Distress Sprayer (also new!) to add water droplets to the page. I did a bit of creative masking and sponging to keep a sun ray over the treasure chest.
I coloured all the images in with Copic markers and fussy cut out the two sharks and popped the right one up with foam tape. I used clear Wink of Stella on the bubbles and the diamond then covered them with Glossy Accents to make them shine.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right sidebar so you don't miss any future posts. Toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
