It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I made a sweet summer birthday card!
Take a look:
The first thing I did was the background. I used watercolor paper on which I applied three colors of distress inks: Chipped sapphire, Salty ocean and Tumbled glass. I made an ombre look, so I went from the darkest at the bottom towards the lightest at the top.
Then I used Brush stroke waves stencil and white pigment ink to make it even more ocean like.
Next, I die cut the background with Dotted patterns: Scallop frames die and trimmed it at the left side, so I got an interesting look at the end.
Next up was the coloring. I stamped out two fish and a squid from Under the sea set and colored them in using alcohol markers. I placed them over my ocean background and I felt like something is missing so I added the seaweed at the bottom. I die cut everything using it’s coordinating dies.
Then I glued everything the background using liquid glue.
After that I added the sentiment. Birthday greetings set has a lot of great birthday sayings, but I ended up using ‘Have an awesome birthday!’. I stamped it in black on a white paper and then I trimmed it to a small rectangle that I popped up using foam tape.
I felt like my animals need some air bubbles, so I used Clear drop mix to make them. I glued them down using liquid glue.
The last thing I did was glued down the ocean background and I used double sided tape to do so.
That’s it for today! Thank you so much for joining me! See you next time.
