Hi everyone. I’m back today with a second punny CAS turtle Valentine’s/love card. Once you see the sentiment, you’ll know where my inspiration came from. 😂 I had so much fun with my turtle Valentine’s card yesterday that I decided to break out another NBUS set with a turtle. And here’s my card.
On a white A2 size piece of X-press It paper, I stamped the turtles with Memento black ink and coloured with YG01, YG03, YG17, G99 Copic markers. I then masked them and blended Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch distress inks for a watery background. For texture I spritz with water, then dabbed with a paper towel to lift some colour.
With some creative masking and my MISTI, I customized the eturtle sentiment and white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. I cut around the right flipper of the right turtle to tuck the sentiment strip under.
Next I die cut the piece with a Stitch Rectangle before adhering it on a white top folding card base. To finish, I added clear Wink of Stella to the heart-shaped shells and added a few clear droplets because I thought they kinda look like bubbles.
