Fish Food!

Hi everyone!  I am here today to share with you a fun card using the stamp Luncheon Meat from I Brake for stamps and a background technique using Distress inks.


To create this background, I smeared some distress inks and oxides onto a craft sheet and spritzed it with some water.  Using a small acetate sheet, I dabbed up the water and dabbed the sheet onto some white card stock.  Once I was happy with the look, I used my blending tool and faded jeans distress ink to add blue tones to the background where white was showing through.

To see the process, click on the video listed below.





I stamped the image onto the distress inked card stock then again onto some white card stock.  I used copic colors to color up the fish images and fussy cut them using my tonic scissors.


I popped up the fish using some foam dots and added some clear nuvo drops where the bubbles were stamped.


This is a really easy technique and makes for a great background.
