How to create 2 cards using different techniques | Ellen Hutson

by Alex

Hi Everyone! Thanks for dropping in today! I made 2 cards for today and I used  S’Whale stamp set for both of them. This set is so popular in this season. I love it so much!

For the first card, I decided to create watercolor stripes using Distress Ink Salty Ocean. I drew stripes and added a few paint splatters (the same color). I used a watercolor paper for my card panel.

Then I colored the whale using ZIG Kuretake Art&Graphic twin marker ( Pink ) and cut out it with Tim Holtz Scissors.
Next I stamped a cluster of fishes, a sentiment and other elements and adhered the whale with foam tape to the card panel. I adhered the card panel to the card base. That’s all!

For the second card background, I decided to use “a mask technique”. I cut out a circle and made a mask. I wanted to create an underwater scene.
I started with blending Altenew inks. For blending, sometimes I like these inks more than Distress inks because they give softer color gradients. I used Caramel Toffe for the sand and Ocean Waves and Deep Iris for the water. Then sprinkled it with water to create bubbles.
Next I created sand and sea grass using other tiny elements from the stamp set.

This card uses the other whale that’s in the set. I colored the whale with ZIG Kuretake Art&Graphic twin markers (Gray and Pink) and cut out it. I had so much fun coloring this guy. I stamped a sentiment and cut out it.

To make a volume, I popped up the whale and the sentiment with foam tape. Finally, I also adhered some clear drops for the final touch.

That’s all!
Can’t wait to play with this set more!
