Avery Elle: Swim Team

Helloooo!  Happy Monday!  Today I’m featuring a card over on the Avery Elle blog blog using the fabby Swim Team stamp set designed by JJ Bolton.  I love all things aquatic so this set is right up my alley.  I started with a white panel and die cut it using the large wonky stitches die.  I then used the wavy edge die from Custom Panels to cut a piece of masking paper which I placed on the panel and then sponged over with distress inks lightly to create a sea bed.  To add a bit of texture I used the Tim Holtz spritzer with some Copics to create a bit of a stoney effect. Using the other piece of masking paper I then masked the sea bed off and repeated the ink blending in shades of blue for the sea.  I used the same masking technique using the wave edge die from the Swim Team die collection also.

Once my base was created I then stamped various elements from the set to create my little underwater scene – popping the shark, starfish and Nemo up on foam tape for some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.
