Kraftin Kimmie May peeks day 3, Under the Sea

IMG_1611

So are ya ready for summer yet?  With all of the goodies from this release I sure am! and perfect timing since Memorial Day unofficially kicks off Summer here in the US!  Today we are playing with the new set from Thais called Under the Sea, and this little Jellyfish is happy as a clam (lol)!  Oh and since it's Saturday, it's time for a Krafty Challenge, this week is ANYTHING GOES!  You can swing by the Kraftin Kimmie blog for more challenge deets!

For today's card I decided to do some mixed media playing.  I REALLY love playing with all of those mixed media goodies, I just don't know how to use them!  Anyway, I knew I wanted to do some kind of watercolor affect and I am SOOOOOOO in LOVE with my Gelatos, (again, not really sure how to use them) so I grabbed a blue, a green and a gray and made some scribbles here and there then took an Aqua Pen and smeared the colors together… FUN!  Not sure if you can see it on the pics below, but Gelato's have some shimmer to them… such a great look!

I used Diamond Glaze stickles to the bubbles Jelly is juggling.  Then I grabbed one of my stencils and some Translucent Embossing paste… in the picture they're kinda hard to see, but I randomly placed them on my card and the look like bubbles πŸ™‚  I used some scotch tape to cover up "random" holes so I could have bubbles only "here and there".  I also added some Enamel Dots to add a little more color-pop.

This week's Cas(e) this Sketch was so perfect for the ideas I'd already had for this card!  This isn't my "normal" style, but I had so much fun playing today πŸ™‚  Ok, thanks for letting me ramble about my playday, but it's  now time for you to hop along and visit the rest of the Krafty Girls & Guests!  Happy Hopping and thanks for popping by!!

  1. Love the fussy cutting. I like to do that but a lot of people don’t. Popping it off the card also adds interest. Great card.

  2. Congrats on trying new techniques! I think it looks awesome! The background turned out beautifully and the enamel dots add just the right pop of color.
