Hello everyone !
First, I used a stitched square die to cut three 4.5" (11.5 cm) rectangles into various shades of blue cardstocks.
Then, I used two nested circle dies to cut into my lighter squares. I used the bigger circle on the front panel and the smaller one on the middle panel.
After that, I used a third smaller circle die to cut two circles into white cardstock. I used a stitched border die to cut the top part of one of them.
I inked my plain circle with my water reactive inks ( Pawsitively Saturated Seafoam, Surf and Ocean inks) and I splattered inks and water on it. I also colored the other piece with my Illustrators markers (GB7 GB4 GB2 GB1 FS9).
I glued the sand part on my blue circle and stamped my sentiment with my darker blue ink.
I splattered blue ink on my blue panels with a brush and water and assembled them : I put foam pads behind the front and the middle panel.
After that, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the cute images from the set (In addition to those on the picture below, I also stamped another rock with plants and four shells).
I used my Illustrators (I) and Copics (C) :
Octopus : V09 V17 V06 V05 V04 V01 (C), Crab : R59 R29 R4 R22 R20 (C), Fishes : G67 YG25 YG03 YG01 Y15 Y11 (C), Jellyfish : RV09 RV06 RV04 RV02 (C), Shells : B04 (I) YR18 Y38 Y35 (C) / R85 R83 R20 (C), Rocks and plants: W7 W5 W3 W1 / YG67 YG25 / R29 R24 R22 (C).
Finally, I glued them on my card : the crab and the fishes directly on the bottom layer. The Jellyfish, the Seahorse and the bigger fish with foam pads on the bottom layer. Then the others on the front panel.
