Jellyfish

After a fabulous 4-day weekend, it's back to work for me tomorrow :(

I made this card for the new challenge at The Heart Desires (sea/colors/geometric theme) as well as the sketch from Sunday Stamps, the Under the Sea theme at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge, the watercolor theme from AAA Cards and the Father's Day theme at Sweet Stampin'.  Phew!


I stamped the cute Lawn Fawn jellyfish onto a watercolor panel and colored them with my Zig markers.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I also painted some vertical streaks of blue to represent the sea.  I adhered that panel to a black angled panel.  The card base is Hawaiian Shores over which I adhered the Waves Cover Plate cut from white.  The sentiment is white-embossed on black and to add some interest, I also added a sliver of Hawaiian Shored cardstock to the bottom.


Thanks for visiting.

What a cute jellyfish card! Love that you made a masculine card with happy colors... usually cards for men have more neutral or dark colors.
