Jellyfish Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Jellyfish Card:o)

To make this card, I was inspired with a card I created in January 2017 (here) and a card I created in July 2017 (here). I used stamps from an adorable Jane's Doodles 'Under the Sea' stamp set.

How I made my card...

stamped jellyfish on a watercolor paper panel and heat embossed bubbles in white. I masked jellyfish and blended the panel with Distress Inks. I splattered the panel with water, dried the panel and repeated the process. When I was satisfied with panel color, I splattered the panel with a Distress Ink Faded Jeans mixed with a bit of water.

After drying, I removed masks and colored jellyfish in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

Then I glued the panel on a white top folded card base and coated jellyfish and bubbles with Wink of Stella.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights and dots on jellyfish and dots on the panel with a white pigment ink. :o)

I really like how my card turned out. Jellyfish look like they're glowing in a sea. :o)
