Air Bubbles

Gorgeous card created by Dot Leathbridge.

Dot has been playing with Distress Oxides to create her fabulous background. The jelly fish and bubbles were stamped first, then masked off. This fantastic stamp set comes with extra bubbles so Dot has added them to create a whirlpool of air bubbles as the jelly fish swims along.

Then the card was smooched through Distress Inks, dried, stenciled, stamped again and finished with the removal of the masking.  Dot really wanted a water-line at the top so that the sentiment could be added ‘out of the water’, but it just didn’t happen!  So that is why there is a ripped section – it’s a compromise.  The words are white embossed with a little black fine-liner added around the letters for shadowing.
