Fish - Swim - Love - Tutorial by Mariken

Hi everyone!
Today I wil show you how you make four cards and a little one, from a left-over.
  Here are two of the finished cards.

  Ok, let's start!...

I used my gelliplate to create a colorful background, starting with three colors of Dina Wakley Acrylic Media Paint.

I cut out some waves and put them on a striped blue background and printed my yellow-orange-pink background again.

I added some dots on the waves and then the prints and white basic cards are cut into the right size.

On Mixed media paper I added little drops of Liquitex acrylic inks and sprayed them with water.

Now it's time for the details!  I used the stampset Textured Sea Creatures and embossed the little elements with white WOW embossing powder. Then I made some bubbles with the stamp from Round in Circles.  I colored them white with a posca marker.

The finishing touch...
I stamped the outlines with Doodle Borders #1 and stamped some black text with Art Defined.  I fussy cut my Textured Sea Creatures and glued them on the card.  Finally  I stamped the words Fish - Swim - Love.

Some close ups of the finished cards.

This little card below is made of a left-over, I cannot throw such a cute little piece of paper away...

Hopefully, you enjoyed my tutorial and give it a try!
Have fun!! Mariken
