Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing an under the sea scene card featuring inking all white die cuts. Adding color to all white die cuts and a background is one of the easiest ways to customize a design to fit whatever color scheme you want for a card! These Die D-Lites Sea Animals and Sea Life Accents are the perfect focal point for the matching inked and stenciled underwater background!
The background of the card was created by die cutting a Nestabilities Scored & Pierced Rectangle Die from Bristol Smooth Cardstock.
Color was added to the rectangle with Shaded Lilac, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. The background was spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted dry. White pigment ink was applied through a Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Scene Builder Stencil to give the illusion of light shining down through the ocean.
Once the background was completely dry, an ocean fun sentiment was stamped and embossed with white embossing ink along the top edge.
A Sea Life Accents border die was die cut from Bristol Smooth Yardstick and inked with Gathered Twigs, Peeled Paint, and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks. Dauber Duo sponge daubers help with adding the Distress Oxide inks more precisely than a larger applicator. The border was adhered along the bottom edge of the ocean scene background and adorned with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White.
The fish, jellyfish, and crab from the Die D-Lited Sea Animals Die Collection were die cut from Bristol Smooth Yardstick and inked with Worn Lipstick, Blueprint Sketch, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks. The images were adhered to the scene as shown. Black cardstick eyes were inlaid in each fish. The fish were adorned with small Nuvo Crystal Drops in English Mustard for the illusion of scales.
The design was finished with Nuvo Crystal Glaze “bubbles”.
I hope this has inspired you to try inking up all white die cuts. Thank you so much for joining me today and I look forward to sharing more die cutting ideas with you soon!
