Big Wet Kisses


My aquarium shaped card showcases the new Big Wet Kisses stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I used the digi version and printed it out, colored it with Copic markers and did some fussy cutting.  I added a bit of shimmer to the fish with Memories Mists (Bright Gold and Copper Shimmer.)  The aquarium was a free clip art I found on Google.


The background was created with Bister wood stains and watercolor paper and Mudd Puddles (Ocean Water and Shells) create the sandy floor.  The fussy cut hearts were covered with Dimensional Glue and Gypsy Red velvet glitter.


For the inside, I wanted to replicate the front, so I added the digi sentiment to the center of my clip art and printed it.  The sand was created with Copics and the shells and sea weed are brads.  

Shimmer embossing powder was heat set onto the background of the fishbowl and Ice embossing powder was used to Bling my Brads - shells and seaweed.  (Click the link for the SNS tutorial on how to do this.) 

I outlined the sentiment with a Sakura glue pen and covered it with Gypsy Red velvet glitter for a bit of color and sparkle.
