The Water Reactive Inks included in the kit are a dream to blend with. Use all 3 kit included colors to create this glow-y background with the deepest shade on the bottom and sides to the lightest in the top center. Sprinkle on water and allow to dry naturally as the frame is created.

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

Die cut 3 of kit included Aquarium Fancy Die frames and adhere them stacked with Precision Glue. Stamp the school of fishies in Ombre Meadow Ink and the sentiment in Black Dye Ink on dry blended background. Adhere frame to blended panel, and the panel to folded card base. Precision Glue a few kit included droplets for the look of bubbles. 

Ink blend bottom third of panel with kit included Sea Glass Water Reactive Ink, middle third with Blue Water, and fade with Sea Salt to white cardstock. Ink just the top of the jellyfish with purple ink and then heat emboss over top section with Pearl embossing powder and the bottom with white detail. The entire jellyfish would actually look really translucent and fascinating with just the pearl embossing powder, however that doesn’t make for good photographs!

Heat emboss sentiment in white directly on the blended panel and create a gradient with gold on black. Trim the black sentiment to just the middle strip and adhere popped over the center line on the inked panel. I love to alter set sentiments! 

Apply panel to folded card base and Precision Glue a series of kit included droplets in place.

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

Mask to create an open strip near top of card. Ink blend with three kit included Water Reactive Inks, darkest at the bottom to lightest at top. 

Stamp silhouette kit images in various vibrant Ombre inks and die cut. Adhere to panel, a few with dimensional adhesive, a few flat. Stamp sentiment in Black Dye ink.

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

I created this card, with the kit, for the Launch post over on the Hero Arts blog. You can find all the details for it HERE.
