Deep Deep Down

I’m back from a nice vacation from Denmark. There were a lot of walking, relaxing and no time for crafting, so the first chance I got to craft again, I had to make a water/sea related card in memory of my nice time at the beach. I went for the “You are Sublime” stamp set from Lawn Fawn for a a really deep dive in the ocean. It also fits the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge as it is some kind of holiday inspired card and of course the sea challenge from Addicted to CAS.

I made another galaxy background, but only used the blues (chipped sapphire,faded jeans, a bitstormy sky) and black from my Distress Inks. After a bit of water, and some acrylic paint splatters (black and blue grey), the card was almost finished. The Angler fish got some blue colouring as well as some white and silver sparkly dots. The sentiment is from the “Little Fireflies” set from Lawn Fawn. As this card is supposed to be a boys’ birthday card and has some light, it seems the most fittings one. The sentiment is white embossed on black paper and the glows part is directly stamped on the background with Crimson Copper ink and was a nice math for the embossing challenge from Clean and Simple on Friday.

The tricky part was the battery and the lights, as this one is my first light card, I had some figuring out to do. In the end it works, but I definitely need some “push here” stamps in the really near future 😉

Happy Crafting,

    This is awesome and a clever design to use the light. I love the colour as it's created a fab underwater feel. A great design Stefanie x

    Your ocean is wonderfully inked, Stefanie, and the fish is darling but it was the light that made this card spectacular. Thanks for sharing it with us at Addicted to CAS.
