…And DAY 16 THE DAILY MARKER 30 DAY COLORING CHALLENGE
Devyn: This card was so fun to make! My mom makes the best undersea cards. She has made several different ones and they’re all awesome! Now it’s my turn to make an underwater card. I started by using Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Lumber Embossing Folder on Gina K Designs Dark Chocolate. Next, I die cut My Favorite Things Porthole out of Tim Holtz Kraft-Stock Metallic Gold. I did a little distress oxide blend behind the eel with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass and cut it out with Avery Elle Burst die. I colored the Eel with Copic Markers, using V12 and V15. I used scraps out of my scrap basket to cut the Memory Box Seaweed Stalks. I stamped ‘I eely like you’ on Gina K. Design Blue Lagoon with Gina K Designs Almagam ink and die cut it with My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Stripes. I adhered it all to a Gina K Designs Blue Lagoon cardstock base.
Lori: I just can’t stop using the Lawn Fawn You Are Sublime set. Paired with Memory Box Underwater dies, they make such fun scenes! I just had to do a lime green sub to match the theme! I used some of Gina K Designs latest colors for cardstock. The base, of course, is Key Lime. The ocean layer is Sea Glass, and the top layer, cut with Memory Box Underwater Collage, is my favorite cardstock color at the moment – Tranquil Teal. I stamped the sentiment on the ocean layer with Gina K’s matching Tranquil Teal ink. Then I cut the Memory Box Seaweed Stalks from Key Lime and Sea Glass, and the Memory Box Small Brain Coral from My Favorite Things Coral Crush. I stamped the sub on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# and colored it with Copic marker colors: YG03, YG17 and G99 with a little white gel pen for the sub, C3, C5, C7 for the metal parts, and B000 & B01 for the windows.
