Balloon Underwater

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Ink, Distress Oxide, fish
It's always fun to stretch your supplies and use them in fun, unexpected ways.  Kecia Waters on the blog today sharing with you a new take on a balloon.

To make this card, I was playing around with Distress Oxides on glossy cardstock.  I smooched Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral onto my craft mat and spritzed with water.  Using glossy cardstock I randomly picked up these puddles of ink.  Once dry, I applied Distress Glaze to the cardstock to make the colors shine on the paper.  Using one of my favorite die sets from AJVD, the Balloon Trio Die Set, I cut a balloon from this glossy cardstock I had treated.  As I looked at the balloon on its side, I saw a fish.  I promptly took my scissors and cut a V-like curved mouth, added a googly eye, and the end result was this cut little fish.

I took a panel of white cardstock, masked along the bottom and sponged various Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans) to create an underwater scene. I flicked some water droplets onto the cardstock to react with the Distress Inks. I removed the mask, and used some Copic markers to create the ground.  

Using the AJVD Happy Birthday Stamp Set, I stamped the little curly line with Versafine Onxy Black.  I added three crystal bubbles to complete the card. 

AJVD Supplies:

I challenge you to look at your stamps and dies in a different way.  You never know what you might come up with to extend your supplies!
