Underwater Scenic Card with Pink Ink Designs!

It's Tuesday which means it's time to share a card created for Topflight Stamps. This week my teammates and I are showcasing  Pink Ink Designs' wonderful products.

Apparently I'm still in a sea-sonal mood, so I've made a card using the Sea Nymphs Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set by Pink Ink Designs.

Here it is!

STAY-tion™ by Wendy Vecchi for Ranger Ink

  1. Use a stamping platform and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the forward facing sea nymph onto white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper.
  2. Fussy-cut the nymph and adhere it over its counterpart on the image panel to mask the image. 
  3. Stamp the two fish onto the image panel and onto the label paper, which also was fussy-cut to mask them.
  4. Clean the small fish stamp, re-ink it, and stamp it onto the image panel and onto label paper. 
  5. Mask the second small fish.
  6. Secure the image panel to the STAY-tion with magnets.
  7. Tear a piece of scrap paper, place it horizontally over the bottom part of the image panel.
  8. Brush two Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink over the masked images onto image panel to create the sea. 
  9. Remove the torn piece of paper and place the other side of the torn paper over the sea and masked images.
  10. Brush Desert Sand Memento ink over the bottom of the panel to form the sand at the bottom of the sea.
  11. Lift the masks and color the sea nymph and her fish with Copic markers. 
  12. Use Copic markers to add detail and depth to the sandy ocean bottom.
  13. Use pink Stardust Glitter gel pen to add some pink sparkle here and there.
  14. Place the image panel back into the stamping platform. 
  15. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the two fancy fish as shown.
  16. Color the two fancy fish with Copic markers.*
  17. Color the frilly bits of the fancy fish with Triplus Fineliner pens.
  18. Use the two colors of green Archival ink to repeatedly stamp the two little foliage stamps that are part of the Floral Wreath Clear Polymer Stamp Set.**
  19. Place the image panel back on the STAY-tion and secure with magnets.
  20. Place the Burst Layering Stencil onto the top part of the image panel, secured with magnets.
  21. Brush white hybrid ink over the stencil onto the image panel.
  22. Lift the stencil and clean it.
  23. Trim the image panel to 4.5" x 6.5" and edge with Distress ink.
  24. Cut Blue Calypso cardstock to 4.75" x 6.75".
  25. Mat the image panel with Blue Calypso cardstock.
  26. Adhere the matted image panel to a 5" x 7" Kraft card.
  • You can use Copic markers to color images stamped with Distress and Memento inks. I used these inks for the background because I wanted to the top fish to be  a bit plainer in color since they were so fancy and detailed. 
  • I used first and second generation stamping for both the foliage stamps.
Thanks for visiting today!
