Zen Sea Turtle with Background Stencil

Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter, here to share two cards that feature stamps from the June 2021 Technique Junkies new release. There are so many wonderful ocean themed cards in this release. I paired the Zen Sea Turtle stamp with the Ocean Frame Sentiments, Set of 5: to create several cards:

I stamped the Zen Sea Turtle using Versafine Clair and Catherine Pooler Ink (Lime Rickey). I heat embossed the turtle with clear embossing powder and cut the turtle with my scan and cut machine. I colored the Circular Motion stencil from A Colorful Life Designs with Catherine Pooler Inks (Tranquil and Cove Blue). I stamped one of the sentiments from the Ocean Frame Sentiments Set of 5 on a piece of blue shimmer cardstock and then trimmed the sentiment with the Deckle Trimmer. I layered the stenciled background on a piece of turquoise glitter card stock. I used foam tape to pop both the turtle and the sentiment up off the card base. These layers I adhered to an A2 top folding landscape card base. For my second card I followed the same steps but used different ink colors for the turtle and the stencil, a different sentiment and green glitter card stock as a mat base.
