Sending You An Ocean of Love

Hi everyone!
I hope you are having a fabulous day and aren't too hot where you are. It is super hot in my area so in my craft room I will stay lol! I made a super cute card today for
 Day 1 of the MFT Camp Create 2019 that actually started earlier this week.
Day 1 was all about Watercolor. Here is a look at what I created:


I mixed some Distress Oxide inks with some water to create my watercolors. I colored some watercolor cardstock with three different colors, getting lighter as I approached the top of the paper. The original plan was to have the entire front of the card be my watercolor panel, but I decided at the last minute to use a Zig Zag Stitched Circle Stax die to create more of a focal piece. Once I had my circle cut out, I added an ocean floor by using some kraft cardstock and the Stitched Basic Edges dies. I heat embossed my greeting along the bottom and added some little fish from the Friends with Fins stamp set and then popped up my circle with some foam tape to the front of my card base. I colored that adorable whale from the Friends with Fins set with my Copics and popped that up with more foam tape. I completed my little scene by adding some coral and sea weed from the Under The Sea dies and added a few Nuvo drops. I added a crochet bow the the top of my card and called it good!


I think this turned out so cute and I had a lot of fun playing with ink, water and paintbrushes today.


I will also be entering my card into the following challenge:
