Congrats: Distress Oxides Two Ways with Guest Designer Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters!

It’s Kelly Latevola here and I am so excited to guest designing for Pink & Main today!

Their are so many amazing stamps from the June release and today we are going to be working with some of them.  The Seas the Day stamp set is super adorable and paired with the new Congrats set it creates some fantastic cards.

Originally, my game plan was to create two cards using two Distress Oxide background techniques. However, the die I chose to use actually gave my two pieces from the one watercolor piece so I ended up with three cards. Happy accident!

You can watch me create the background and do the Copic coloring in the video below.

The reason you can only watch that is because the camera gremlins got me again. 🙁

Unfortunately, my camera decided to either not record or delete the footage for the actual assembly of the cards. I’m so sorry! The main techniques are still included so I hope you’ll still check it out.

I loved working with these little critters! Well, to be honest those gorgeous distress oxides make it so easy to get inspired to use some colors.

I’ve included some close up shots because i know it can be difficult to see all the little details in the large photo.

This sweet octopus was just added flat the raised watercolor panel.

The clear droplets accent the charming sentiment to create a visual triangle. I prefer to add my droplets with glossy accents. It dries clear and you can still the background below them.

For the turtle I opted to add the sentiment in the center to lead the eye from the turtle to the seashell and starfish. The clear droplets help by creating a trail from one element to the other.

For the whale card I felt like this endearing little guy was more than enough to carry the card by himself. Again, i used the clear droplets to tie the sentiment into  the character without distracting from that beautiful watercolor.

Thank you guys so much for visiting and a huge thank you to Michelle for the invite! I hope you’re inspired to create some ocean cards with these lovable stamps soon!
