I alway felt the magic when I go to the Aquarium at Monterey Beach. I can spend my whole vacation just sitting and watching the jelly fish. They come in so many wonderful sizes, shapes and colors! I become mesmerized and it is like magic to me! I wanted to relate some of that magic feel when I created this card with the translucent effect of the jellyfish. I will be showcasing the Under the Sea Coral Stamp and Die Set from Heartfelt Creations.

Card Base - The base was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 inches. The paper was scored at 5 1/2 inches. A bone folder was used to make a tight crease at the top fold. A tip is to place a light piece of paper over the fold before using the bone folder in order to not leave any unwanted marks on your fold.
Card layers - The base layer was cut at 4 x 5 1/4 inches. The designer paper is from Under the Sea Paper Collection. I selected a paper that coordinated with the undersea image. The layer was cut at 3 3/4 x 5 inches. The edges were sponged with Memento Danue Blue Dye Ink. Adhere the layers to the card base using double sided tape.
Focal image - The jellyfish image was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card (you can use any Copic compatible paper). The image was colored with the following Copic alcohol ink markers - B000, B00, B20, B21, B24, B26, RV00, RV01 and colorless blender.The image was lightly spritzed with a water mini mister on the underside to soften the paper fibers. The jellyfish was shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool. Allow the shaped image to dry.
Sentiment - The sentiment was cut from the mat section of Under the Sea Paper Collection. The sentiment was applied to the upper part of the card.
The jellyfish was applied to the card using Double 3-D Dots. Glue glitter was applied at the base of the card to give the impression of a shiny sea floor covered with shells and pearls.
