Varada Sharma Designs has a fun, nautical release this August. From coral reefs and shells to sea creatures and punny sentiments, you are sure to find a cute combo you have to have.
Today's project features stenciling, foiling and colored pencil work.
Canson XL recycled Bristol paper
Distress ink in Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, and Cracked Pistachio
Blue faux watercolor card base
Ric Rac die
I started by coloring the coral in bright pinks and purples to contrast the neutral greens of the tortoise.
After I colored, I used a wavy stencil to add some texture and bluish background to the water. I blended it with three colors of Distress Ink.
Then I ran just the sentiment through my Minc laminator with green foil to give the card some shine.
I finished the tortoise with some funny googly eyes because it made me laugh.
