(CAS)E this Sketch #181

Hello there!  I have a card to share with you today that I made for the current (CAS)E this Sketch using some adorable Reverse Confetti products!

To make my card I started with a piece of white card stock.  I stamped the crab, whale, and octopus from Seaside using Wplus9 inks (Little Piggy, Silver Lining, and Beanstalk).  Next I used the Seaside Confetti Cuts to cut a crab, whale, and octopus out of Inkadinkado Mask Paper.  I covered the sea critters with their mask, and then used some distress inks to do some ink blending (Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon).  I added some water droplets to the ink blending to bring up some white spots.  When you remove the masks you are left with the stamped images and a bit of a white border around them.  For a scene like this I think by making it one layer like this it seems as though the animals are actually under the water.  I used Doin' the Wave Confetti Cuts to trim the top of my panel to give it a wavy look, and cut the bottom of the panel straight.  I popped the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment, also from Seaside, in black,  and added a couple of sequins to finish the card.  This was quick and easy to make, but I think it has a big cuteness factor!
