Under The Sea

Under The Sea


Today we have a fun summer inspired card.  Using two Brutus Monroe stamp sets. The first stamp is the Under Water Background stamp. The other is the Mermaid Lagoon stamp set. Because the card is so colorful and fun I chose to not use a sentiment on the front but plan to stamp my message on the inside only. 

First, stamp the background and mermaid then fussy cut or use a cutting machine to cut out the background scene and mermaid. Next, color the scene and mermaid using Style File markers. The background layer was inked using a stencil of sun rays to create the light through water effect. A few drops of water were added to create the bubbles.

The background stamped images were attached to the inked background layer.  

The final step is to place the mermaid in the center. (I must confess that I was a bit sad when I realized the mermaid covered up most of my water effects.) I used foam adhesive squares to pop up the mermaid. 

This layer was placed onto a navy blue layer and then onto the card base. Any sentiment you choose will go nicely inside this happy and colorful card.

Please share your creations with us on the Brutus Monroe Facebook Fan Page.
