Caribbean Sea Card with Spectrum Noir

Hi everyone, today I have a card for you showing you how you can create a cute little scene with some fun sea images and using lots of Spectrum Noir Colourblend coloured pencils along the way!

Step 1:

On some Canson 1557 extra white paper I stamped a couple of images from the Studio Light Caribbean Sea Collection stamp sets: STAMPSL383 and STAMPSL385. These I coloured with the following colours of Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils: Pumpkin, Nectarine, Flame Red, Pistachio, Jade, Emerald, Ivy, Maple, Espresso, Sea Grass and Denim Blue. Because the images are quite small you don’t have to worry about creating a lot of depth.

All of the coloured pencils used on today’s project are from the following Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencil sets: Primaries, Essentials and Bold Brights.

I added some highlights to the eyes using a white Gelly Roll Pen. Then I fussy cut all the images.

Step 2:

With the use of the Studio Light Cutting & Embossing set STENCILSL198 I then die cut a panel in the shape you can see in the picture from the same Canson 1557 paper. On this panel I created my lay out but I didn’t adhere the images yet! I now know where my sentiment will go and I colour the sand/sea part with Maple and Denim Blue Colourblend pencils. Then I place the panel into my stamping tool and stamp the sentiment using black ink as well as the air bubbles. Both the sentiment and the air bubbles are from the Studio Light stamp sets mentioned above. I also stamped the background text stamp from the Studio Light stamp set STAMPSL382 onto the sea blue pencil colour using Memento Summer Sky ink (behind the sea turtle). I didn’t wanted this to attract a whole lot of attention, just an interesting detail in the background!

Step 3:

I die cut a slightly larger panel in the same shape as the first one, from some matching orange card stock, using a size larger die from the STENCILSL198 die set mentioned before. These two panels I adhere together using liquid glue.

Then I take my white linen textured base card and use it as a top fold card this time. On this card base I stamp the sea waves from one of the stamp sets mentioned before using black ink and colouring the part beneath it lightly with the Denim Blue Colourblend pencil.

Step 4:

Now I can put my card together: I adhere the combined panels to my card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and then adhere the small images on top of this also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

To finish the card I add some Ranger Glossy Accents to the air bubbles to make them look more shiny and dimensional.

And that’s it for today’s sea project! I wish you a creative day!
