Hello crafty friends! The new Message in a Bottle Card Kit from My Favorite Things is now available! I have had so much fun using this kit and have one more project to share with you.
I created an underwater scene today where I wanted it to look like the bottle had just been dropped into the ocean for its journey. I first created my card background by using the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil and blending a few Distress Inks onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock.
I kept my lighter colors toward the top of the water to reflect the incoming sunlight and blended with my darker colors toward the bottom of this panel. Once I had finished blending, I generously splattered this piece with water using a #4 paint brush. I let the water sit for about a minute before blotting it dry with a paper towel.
Once it was dry, I then used my Message in a Bottle Die-namics to cut out an area for my bottle. I trimmed another piece of white card stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and lined it up under my top piece and then glued the negative piece from my bottle onto this sheet. I then adhered my shaker pouch to the top panel (the ink blended one) and then added some embellishments and my sentiment to the bottom panel as shown above. I then carefully adhered my ink blended panel to the bottom panel, lining up the bottle of the shaker pouch on top of the diecut bottle below.
I then added a little ocean scene using the Under the Sea Die-namics. For the bottom of the ocean floor, I had first diecut this piece from Smooth White Card Stock and then blended it with both Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks.
Lastly, I added some curious little fish from the Birdie Brown Gill Friends Stamp Set. I adhered them with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension.
This fun kit is available at a bundle deal in limited quantities. For more kit inspiration, head on over to the MFT Blog.
