Hello Bluebird – Puddle Play

Welcome back for some more Hello Bluebird cuteness!  I’m sharing the first card I made for this release bc I just loved these Puddle Play images.

Puddle Play

I used distress oxide ink (I believe in Salty Ocean) to ink the a full panel and sprayed bigger droplets of water to create the splatters you see above.  After coloring my images with some copic markers, I temporarily laid them out on my ink panel and decided where I wanted to place the critters and stamped the puddle, water splashes and cloud and embossed them on the panel in white.  This gives it a softer look rather than using black – which I normally would go for, but I got inspired by a card Keeway made for Hello Bluebird and thought I needed to try something new!

When I colored the elephant, I did dotted strokes to give him the texture that he has.  Then I added white lines using a white Gelly Roll pen to the images to give it added interest.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment on black paper (I love doing that, if you haven’t already noticed) with white embossing ink to finish the card.

I feel that this card was super quick to make (aside from the fussy cutting, which I had to do because I didn’t have the dies while making this card – but it is available for purchase!  I’ll link it below), so I hope it helps inspire you to try something like this!

Take care until next time!

XOXO,
