You may have already seen a few sneak peaks of my project today. I have used the adorable Shellabrate set that was offered as an exclusive freebie if you pre-ordered any items from the new release. If you didn’t manage to snap this up now, the set will be released at a later date. Alternatively, the Oceans of Love set has a similar turtle you can use. I just love this cute little turtle!
I started off with an A6 card base, blending on some Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink into a random pattern. I then splattered on some clean water droplets and set aside to dry. I then used a couple of MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circle Dienamics to cut a number of holes from another piece of A6 white card.
On some blending cardstock, I stamped out three of the turtles and two hats using some Copic-friendly MFT Licorice Black Hybrid ink. I coloured them in with my Copic alcohol markers, using several hues of YG and G markers. There is a diamond shape stamp included in the set to add some detail to the shell, but I used a couple of markers to draw my own hexagonal shapes in. I coloured in the hats with some bright yellow and reds so they would stand out from the background. I cut these out with the coordinating dies and added a few little highlights with a white gel pen.
I absolutely love all the sentiments in this tiny set, so I had to use them all on this card. I white heat embossed them onto some black cardstock and closely trimmed them out.
To essemble the card, I used some foam tape on the back of the white panel to adhere it to the blended cardbase. I used a mixture of foam tape and liquid adhesive to adhere the turtles and sentiments, arranging them so it looks as though they’re swimming out from the peep holes!
