Building A Scene – Inspired By Card Series (ft. Jess Crafts Digitals)


Happy Friday!

I’m back with the second post from this mini card series. If you miss the first one, you can find it here. Today’s card is all about how to build a simple scene with your creature stamps.

And I’m featuring again the Fish Friends digital stamp set designed by a very talented Jess Gerstner. So it means that my scene is under the sea one. That’s why I decided to play with water and some droplets (real and faux). In term of supplies, of course, my choice was distress inks plus watercolor card stock because these mediums are the best for water techniques. For the bubble background I did an ombré ink blending starting with a dark intense blue color and faded it into a very light blue. Then I added some water droplets from a spray bottle, let them sit on the paper for a few seconds and picked the excess with a paper towel. Distress inks reactivate with water so you can lift up very easily some color and achieve a fancy background using this technique.


While the background was drying, I colored with copic markers and fussy cut with my scissors the fish stamps that were previously printed by me on a copic friendly paper using a laser printer.

Finally added some small elements that tied all the card together: the small stamped fishes and seaweeds I used on this card are from Simon Say Stamp’s Best Fishes set and the faux clear droplets are from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s all for today! Stay tuned for the next posts! Hope you like today’s card and the Fish Friends stamps! If so I have a coupon code for you. You can save 25% with the code GDTFAN at Jess Crafts Digitals.
