Under The Sea | Mixed Media Card

Hi there! As summer is in full swing there’s no better time to create ‘under the sea’ themed cards and projects! Our NEW Ripped fishnet stamp is a perfect fit for this, and Heather Mitchell has combined it with our gorgeous jellyfish stamp and more to create an amazing mixed media scene for today’s inspiration…

Hello everyone…

Today I’m sharing a bit of a busy make using the new Ripped Fishnet stencil from the wonderful Visible Image.

I started with a basic green and grey shaded background to which I then added the Ripped Fishnet stencil.  Over the stencil I added a mixture of Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Oxide Ink.

For some reason (and I have absolutely no idea why) I decided to add these large green bubble shapes which I’m not sure about now.  I used the Mesh It Up and centre of the Daisy Daisy stencils to add some interest to them and splattered them with white Posca pen and indian ink.

The Ripped Fishnet stencil is crying out for sea themed makes and I had to do one to get it out my system so I grabbed the Dare to Swim and Art Rebel stamp sets for those gorgeous fish!  The fish were heat embossed onto a tag I hadn’t made into anything… and the jellyfish stamped and then clear embossed to seal the colours.

The jelly fish was coloured using a mixture of Derwent Intense pencils and Arteza Brush Pens before being trimmed and set aside.

I decided to add some fine-liner scribble around the bubble shapes and then added the Scripted Streets text stamp dotted around for some extra texture.  For a little bit of sparkle, I added the cute shoal of fish in WOW’s Aquamarine powder and they do look lovely and shimmery.

For the seaweed, again I’ve clear embossed over Distress Oxide inks and coloured as I did the jelly fish.  They’ve then been layered on the card using foam dots with the fish woven in and out.

The images have been layered and I’ve added some glossy accents to the circles on the jelly fish and dotted a few around as bubbles.

The sentiment, courtesy of the 2020 Vision set, has been stamped twice to create a slight shadow and I’ve given the large circle the glossy accents treatment to match the rest of  the card.

It’s a very busy card and a bit quirky but I kind of like that!  Here are the Visible Image products I’ve used for the make…

Shine | Robot Stamp | Fishnet Stencil

Hello! We are back with more awesome new stencils inspiration today! Macarena is here with fantastic mixed media tag featuring an amazing textured background for our Robot stamp using the NEW Ripped Fishnet stencil…

Hello there. Hope you’re fine and relaxed.

Here is my cosmic tag using the Ripped Fishnet stencil from the newest collection and the Robot stamp.

I passed the Nuvo Mousse through the Ripped Fishnet stencil and heated it until it bubbled (that’s how I like to build the texture).

Then covered the whole surface with black gesso and finally smeared with mousses.

Transform | Mermaid Stamp | Fishnet Stencil

Good Evening! We are sneaking in with another project tonight… Ericka Strange has teamed up our awesome NEW ‘Ripped Fishnet’ stencil with our ‘Mythical Mermaid’ stamp to create a stunning card…

Today I’m showcasing the NEW Ripped Fishnet stencil with Distress Oxide inks

I used Bristol Smooth paper and post it tape to mask off a section of my card. I then took Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers and blended the two colours together. I then used the Fishnet stencil and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide and blended it on top of the two colors.

I didn’t want the background of the mermaid to be white, so I first blended Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.

I stamped the image with Versafine ink and only heat embossed the portion on the mermaid I wanted to sparkle with Cloud 9 embossing powder.

I took a water brush and paper towel and removed the ink on a portion I wanted to be lighter. I then added some Zig Real Color Brushmarkers for added depth to the image and cut her out to use on my card.

I applied foam tape to the back and adhered her to the card base. I added the sentiment from the Wings of Change set to finish off my card.
