Simon Says Stamp | Keep On Swimming Card

Hello friends! I’ve got a Keep On Swimming card to share today featuring even more ink blending (I’m on a roll) and some quick Copic coloring. I like to make encouragement cards for my friends (and also just for fun – for myself) so I made one using a few supplies from Simon Says Stamp.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by stamping 5 fish from the Deep Sea Animals stamp set in Simon’s Intense Black ink. Next, I used my Copic markers to some quick coloring. I used YG67, YG17 and YG25 as well as Y35, Y13 and Y11. Once my coloring was done I cut fish out with a coordinating die, added a white pen highlight and coated with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen for some sparkle.

Next, I used Deep Sea, Maliblue and Duckling inks to ink blend a pretty background that looked like the bottom of the sea. I also white heat embossed a large “Yay” from the Emphatic stamp set on the left hand side of my panel to add some interest to my card. I foam mounted my fish on top and also added “Keep On Swimming” and “You Got This” sentiments stamped in black on white cardstock strips.

To create the front panel of my card I used my stripes stamp set and stamped a number of stripes in Maliblue ink. I had some yellow ink residue on the stamp, so the color got a bit contaminated and became more mint than blue.

I foam mounted my panel onto the card and added a number of air bubbles onto the panel using Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew. I also used Glossy Accents and coated each fish for a shiny glossy look.
