The Ocean is my home

Hi everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club! This month we are celebrating 

World Ocean Day

The ocean covers more than 70% of Earth’s surface, and being the largest ecosystem on our planet, it functions as a life support system for all its inhabitants.
World Ocean Day happens on June 8th , but that is not the only day you can dedicate to the ocean and the incredible role it plays in our lives. There are plenty of events that you can take part in throughout the year to support this cause.

We, at DotMCC, have decided to dedicate our new challenge to this day, where we hope many of you will join us!

I made three ACT's that make a nice little underwater scene when placed next to each other.

First, I lightly sponged the three ATC's with Distress Oxide Fired Brick and then stenciled with Chipped Sapphire and Mermaid Lagoon. Next, I colored in some of the stenciled images with colored pencils and alcohol markers (starfish, seashell and winkles). Stamped bubbles with Versamark and embossed them white.
To create the seabed, I added leftover snippets of homemade background paper to the base of the ATC's. I stamped the funny fish and plants (all from the same set) on Bristol paper and embossed them clear. Colored with alcohol markers, cut them out and glued them to the ATC's. I used the very small fish to frame the ATC's.

Hope I could inspire you and make you want to join in!

  9. C'est tout simplement magnifique, Rosi ! À première vue, je croyais que c'était une carte accordéon et je voulais savoir ce qui se cachait derrière, j'étais déjà plongée (sans jeu de mots) dans l'histoire ! Ce fond marin est tout simplement sublime et me donne bien envie. Bises

  10. A fabulous trio of ATCs - bright, bold and quirky too! Thanks for raising awareness of World Ocean Day with your beautiful project, Rosi - I didn't realise it was on June the 8th, but as coincidence would have it, I was extremely lucky to see a pod of dolphins in the North Atlantic whilst cruising home from holiday :)
