Under the Sea

I'm obsessed with water secene lately. In this card, I wanted to create a dimensional background that shows the depth of the ocean. At the same time, I also wanted to create a shaker card. So I decided to combine them. However, the card got too thick after turning into shaker card, I felt it would be weird to make each layer thicker.
For the background, I first die cuts 3 cardstocks with different oval sizes. I stacked all four cardstocks (including the bottom most layer) together, and ink blended them with distress inks so that the color transition in all cardstocks are consistent. I spritzed some water at the end and wiped them out to create water effect.


I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.

Supplies used in this card:
  • MFT Soak up the fun stamp set (MFT)
