To create my card first I cut my card base layers with the Slimline Corner Scalloped Die set from the Seaside Paper Pack and plain white watercolor paper. Then I die cut the Ocean waves using the By the Sea Die, and the bottom sand border using the At the Beach Die.
Next I ink blended my ocean wave layers using the Tropical Sea and Bali Blue Hybrid Inks. To create more depth and pattern to my waves, I placed the Ocean Waves Stencil over the areas I just ink blended, and added a second layer of color. Then at the bottom of the top wave layer, I used the Under the Sea Stencil with the Bali Blue and Raven Hybrid Inks to create my dark blue seaweed silhouettes.
I then watered down some white acrylic paint and then splattered my finished ocean scene with a paintbrush loaded with the paint, and then quickly tapping it against my hand to create small white sea spray accents.
To complete my ocean scene I stamped and colored the Beautiful Mermaids with Alcohol Markers and added them to the front of my card with foam squares for some added dimension.
