Under-Water Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends, I am so glad you stopped by so we can make this under water scene for a Birthday card.



For this card I used the cute set "Submarine Cubbies" from Art Impressions.


I created the background from light blue 5 inch 5 inch square cardstock and ink blended Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Speckled Egg Distress Inks. keeping the darkest shades on the edges and fading as I go inside with lighter shades.


I splashed some water droplets and lifted them with a clean paper towel to give light areas that look like bubbles.


I then used my white gel pen to draw bubbles and some doodles to give a visual texture to the background.



I stamped my little critters and the submarine on white Bristol Smooth paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and my Mini Misti.


I then colored all my images with Copic markers.

Shades I used for Copic Markers:


Submarine: E42 E40 Accents: YR22 YR21 Darker Windows: E43

Dolphin: E43 E42

Seahorse + Lobster: YR24 YR21

Turtle: BG10 BG11

Octopus + Fish: B01 B00


and die cut them using the dies included.


I backed the submarine and the dolphin with foam tape and glued the other critters with Nuvo Glue directly on the background.


I attached the submarine and then added the phrase "Happy Birthday, Let's Celebrate". I used Heidi Swapp Letter Stickers.
