For todays card (shown above) I wanted to create a really pretty under water scene for the jelly fish and star fish, so of course I went straight to my distress inks to create this watercolor background. I used a variety of blue hues in both the regular distress ink, and mini distress ink sizes. Once I was done when that I thought it would a little bit too powerful of a background and I wanted to take it down a notch so that the adorable fish images wouldn't get lost in the background--so I took out a piece of vellum and used that to sort of diffuse the watercoloring that I did on the Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I also heat embossed both sentiments in white embossing powered and I think it made the card look great. I also wanted to have the waves incorporated into this design, somehow, so I used the new, Ocean Wave Borders, to get that effect. To color in the images I used my Copic markers--I just love the pastely vibe.
I hope you love this mini set just as much as I do, and if you'd like to see more DT samples feel free to click, here, to head over to the Lawn Fawn Blog for a closer look at the set along with an intro video by, Kelly Marie.
