Clearly Besotted: August Release Countdown Day 2

We were dancing in the clouds yesterday, but today I’m taking you deep sea diving into the ocean depths to search for sunken ships! I absolutely love this stamp set from Clearly Besotted and hope my project today shows you why it’s such a great set!

This stamp set is called Dive Right In and all the images I’ve used here on this card is from this set. I stamped it in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored it up with copic markers, then used my ScanNCut 2 to cut out all my images. I wanted the shipwreck to be a bit more seamless in the ocean without having to fussy cut right on the line, so I colored the white area around it with a blue copic marker that closely matched the ocean.

I ink blended my ocean with Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, and Faded Jeans distress oxide inks. You may see some wavy lines in the background and that is because I layered in my ink blending with a stencil such as the Fresly Cut Stencil. The overlapping of the hills adds a fun texture into the ocean blend and then I sprinkled it with water to create this little distressed bubbles.

I stamped my sentiment in the top right corner and then added all the images to the my card with either liquid adhesive or foam tape. I got a little carried away with adding all the divers onto the card, but only because they were too cute to leave out!

Be sure to stop on by the Clearly Besotted blog for lots of inspiration and details of the August Release you don’t want to miss! I’ve got more adorable stuff to share with you tomorrow!
