I wanted to squish in an extra post for today – another sea card. I had already posted a sea card and I like the pattern of it. So couldnt resist making the same type again only with different technique- distress ink blending!
While making this card , all I could think was the movie Finding Nemo . Its one of my favorite movies . Who doesn’t like disney and pixar creations? I loved the quotes from Finding Nemo and this is what came to my mind -” I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy ”
Yes, I m talking about jelly fish ! They are so graceful and beautiful to look at and yet many of them are dangerous.
Here’s the card i made:
Stamps: There she goes (discontinued) for jelly fish and the oyster and the sentiment, Lawn fawn critters in the sea -(weed, wave)
Ink used:Memento tuxedo black ink, distress ink tumbled glass , broken china, vintage photo, copics N1,C6, E40, E21 (for oyster), YG17 (for weed), YR04 for orange oyster (wth Y17, R24), RV13 for pink oyster (with Y17, C6)
Paper: Neenah solar white cardstock , Neenah desert storm cardstock
Embossing folder : Lifestyle crafts wave
Misc: Stickles, glossy accent, pearl from recollections embellishment, water mister, dimensionals

- Cut A 2 size card from neenah solar white cardstock (8.5″ X 11 “) folded at 4.25″ X 5.5”
- Cut the card base 5.25″ X 4″ piece from neenah solar white cardstock – Using ink blending foam and distress ink broken china and tumbled glass color the entire piece and then spritz with water using water mister and allow it to dry.

Here’s a close up :
The water effect from distress ink is visible and isn’t the pearl in the oyster adorable?
I seriously wish there was some nemo and dory there!
