Under the sea… with Tim Holtz

Hi everyone, who remembers the lyrics from Disney’s The Little Mermaid? Well, I do and I have to say it is quite the catchy tune. I was humming it while I was making my cards…

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin‘
Full time to floatin‘
Under the sea…

So, here are 4 cards I made using the adorable stamp set Nautical Blueprint by Tim Holtz. I really like the blueprint series a lot. It gives a project certain flair and I find the images quite adorable.

For each of the cards I used Neenah Dessert Storm as a card base and stamped the image directly on the card front.

I stamped the same image again on white cardstock and colored in the solid image with Tim Holtz distress inks. I then cut out the image and put it on the card front using foam adhesive for some dimension.

For the sentiment I wanted a bold greeting that would bring a great contrast to the image. I choose “make a wish” from the Avery Elle set Cakes & Candles which I heat embossed in white.

As a last step I covered the images with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen. Because really, who can resist a bit of glitter!
