It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and I must say I love summer, so I am mostly making summer themed cards these days. I haven’t made a slim card in a while so I was super excited when Studio Katia release them and today I finally made a card with one of the slimline dies!
Take a look:
I started creating this card by ink blending my background on top of watercolored paper using Studio Katia ink blending brushes (that I just love!). I decided to go with blue color scheme, so I used 3 shades of distress inks that go together nicely. Instead of inkblending everything in straight lines, I made the background a bit more dynamic with using the darkest color just in a few small parts.
Once the base ink blending was done, I sprinkled some clear water on top which is bearly seen in the finished project, but adds a nice details to the background.
I still wasn’t 100% satisfied with my ocean, so I added some white embossed air bubbles which can be found in Jawsome and Under the sea stamp sets. To get the bubbles to match with the background a bit better, I went ahead and added some white gel pen dots all over the ink blending.
Next, I die cut my ocean scene out with the biggest Dotted slimline – set 2 die. I made sure that my ink blending is positioned in the middle of the card, so the focus is in the center.
Then, I stamped out some images from Jawsome and Under the sea stamp sets and colored them in using alcohol markers. I used just a few different colors since I didn’t want the images to be overwhelming.
The last thing I added was the ‘Hello there’ sentiment from Whimsical town stamp set. I used black ink for stamping so the colors are nicely connected with one another.
Then, I glued everything together using Studio Katia glue and some foam tape and the card was all finished!
Thank you so much for joning me!
