Under the Sea

This all started with me wanting to combine 3 things..

1. A piece of the cardstock created using the markers on the acetate. (See previous post...

2. Art Institute Glitter's Fantasy Film

3. And a challenge from 2 Pea's in a Bucket to stamp on transperencies...

So when you pull all those together... You might get something like this... :)

Here's the recipe and it's a doozy... :)

  1. Start by creating the background following the previous post with blues and greens. Cut it to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".

  2. Stamp the sea creatures using different StazOn colors on a transparancy.

  3. Turn over the transparancy and use Copic markers to color the sea animals.

  4. Cut out the sea animals.

  5. Take the Fantasy film and cut off a piece. Turn on the heat gun and using something to hold the Fantasy film in place heat it up until it wrinkles and changes colors.

  6. Tear pieces of the Fantasy Film and adhere them to the bottom of the background.

  7. Ink the school of fish with yellow and orange and stamp randomly in the background. Stamp the individual fish randomly on the background.

  8. Attach the sea creatures using little pop dots.

  9. Tear little pieces of the fantasy film and attach randomly around the picture.

  10. Take clear letter stickers and attach to transparency. Using alcohol inks color back side of the letters. Cut letters out and affix using small pop dots.

  11. Using stickles glitterize your sea creatures...

  12. Attach your masterpiece to the card!
