Cheapo Dies Jumping Dolphins

Hello Blogging Friends,

It is my turn on the Cheapo Dies Blog today and I am showcasing the beautiful Exclusive Cheapo Dies Jumping Dolphins die.

Here is my card:


White card stock
Watercolor paper
Faded Jeans distress oxide
Cracked Pistachio distress oxide
Peacock Feathers distress oxide
Broken China distress oxide
Salty Ocean distress oxide
Copic Markers BG 01, 05 49 and C1, C3, & C6
Clear embossing powder
Black embossing powder
Black marker
Black ink 
Sentiment stamp

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took some watercolor paper and Cracked Pistachio, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Salty Ocean distress oxide and put the different colors onto my craft mat.  I took some water and spritzed the colors and then ran my watercolor paper through the colors several times and drying it with my heat gun and then spritzing more water onto the paper and drying it with the heat gun.  I then added that paper to the base of the card.  I took some Neenah Solar White paper and the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Jumping Dolphins die and cut that out.  I colored in the dolphins with the C1, C3 and C5 Copic markers.  I colored in the waves with Copic markers BG01, BG05 and BG49.  I then put Versamark all over the die cut and heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder and then attached that to the bottom of the card.  I took the sentiment stamp and some Versamark and stamped that onto the card and then heat embossed it with Black embossing powder.  I took the Black marker and colored in the dolphins eyes!

Thanks for stopping by!
