Oh Manatee...Or Maybe Coffee?

September 10, 2018


Hi Everyone! It's Cathy here with a card using the 
 playful Oh Manatee stamp set. These guys have so much personality. 
Who doesn't love a big huggable manatee?!





I created a little habitat for him by die-cutting the background pieces and airbrushing a blue-green gradient with Copics. The Avery Elle waves die that I've used here is quite intricate, so it's easier to ink or airbrush the cardstock before die-cutting.

I've cut a few areas out of the waves background piece for open space to stamp the sentiments.




I colored all of the images from this stamp set with Copics and also used the coordinating dies to this set.

To bring the manatee up out of the scene just a bit and give him the appearance of floating along in the seaweed, I adhered him with dimensional foam tape.

Hope you enjoyed and happy crafting!
See you soon!

Cathy

Hi Everyone,  It's Melissa here.  For today's card I have used the digital image 'Cold Hedgehog'.

The image has been coloured with Copic Markers. The card has been cut down and mounted onto an Alcohol Ink background.  The sentiment has been printed using the computer and adhered to the card.  The border has been drawn using a Copic Multi Liner Pen.


I hope you have a fun day!
