Today I show you a scene card I created featuring the Heffy Doodle Shellabrate Clear Stamp Set.
This little turtle is just the cutest! When I saw it, I immediately thought to create an underwater scene!
For my work, I used Arches 100% cotton Satin Watercolor Paper. I love to use this type of watercolor paper to have a very smooth effect.
I started stamping the turtle with the Distress Oxide Antique Linen, to have a delicate effect. I masked it using the Nuvo Masking Fluid and then let it dry.
I realized the water and the seafloor using the Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors, with the wet-on-wet technique. Before the color dried completely, I made the light rays and reflections on the backdrop by removing the color with a brush wet with clean water.
After that, I gently removed the masking fluid from the turtle. I colored it with watercolors as well, but this time I used the wet-on-dry technique, to have a more defined effect.
I added the shadows on the turtle and on the seafloor with a black pastel pencil to give more depth.
At last, I used a white gel pen to realize the bubbles and the highlights.
Thanks for joining me on this underwater journey! I hope my card will inspire you and I’ll be back soon with new projects!
Have a colorful day!
