Under the Sea Birthday Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #293)

Hi everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.
http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/

Our theme for this fortnight is #293 - Now that's Cool! A card that moves or doesn't open in the typical manner.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Jaime from our DT (Jaime's CTMH).


For this challenge I made this interactive, wobbler, Under the Sea Birthday Card.


For this card I used lovely Jane's Doodles 'Under the Sea' stamp set .

First I created a scene on a white panel, stamping and masking. I used post it papers for masking. When I was done with stamping, I didn't remove masking papers. I distressed whole surface with Stormy Sky Distressed Ink, using blending tool. Then I sprayed whole panel with water and splattered it with water, using paintbrush. After drying on the air, I splattered the panel with white tempera color mixed with water, using paintbrush.  

After the panel was completely dry, I removed masking papers (post it), colored images with colored pencils and blended colors with baby oil using paper stumps. I covered shells, starfish and bubbles with gloss resin to create glossy accents. After drying, I glued 3-D foams behind the panel and glued it on the card base. 

I stamped a crab on a scrap of cardstock paper, colored him with red colored pencil, blended color with baby oil using paper stump and left him dry. Then I fussy cut him, colored edges with black permanent marker, glued wobbler on him and placed him on a card. I used photo tutorial Wackel-Karte/Wiggling Card from Stempeleinmaleins to make this fun mechanism, wobbler. 

I stamped sentiment on a piece of vellum paper, drew callout shape around the sentiment, cut it out, erased pencil marks and glued it on a card. 

Here is a short video of my wobbler card. Sorry for the poor quality of the video.
