Craft Consortium - Polar Playtime #4

Hi guys 💜
I'm back again to share my 4th card using the 'Polar Playtime' (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch) from Craft Consortium. The collection is available on the Craft Consortium website and in good craft retailers both here in the UK and in the USA. It will also be launched on Create & Craft TV in the New Year (tbc). As previously mentioned the collection has the most adorable polar bears and penguins and contains fabulous 3 x A6 stamp sets, a 12" x 12" & 6" x 6" paper pad, a decoupage set, wooden shapes and embellishments. Definitely check it out!

For today's card I have used the 'Make A Splash' stamp set with the cute seal and little fishes to create an icy scene. I used distress ink for the background sky, and pencils to create the scene.

I've added direct links to the products below, or you can also go direct to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here, and sign up for updates on any future product launches.

Here's What I Did   
I trimmed down a piece of teal card, which I embossed using an embossing folder. The card was then attached to the front of a 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a thin border around the edge. 

I die cut 2 pieces of card into a rounded square - one from Desert Storm Neenah for the foreground and one from strong white card for the background.

Using the white square I blended several distress inks together onto it to create a night sky. I added splash of water all over the card and dabbed off the excess, I followed this with splashes of clear glitter pen. When everything was complete dry, I splashed watered down white paint over the top to create stars.

I die cut a circle from white card and loosely added diluted yellow and blue distress ink to create a moon - I used Picket Fence, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass.

I lightly drew a horizontal line across the desert storm neenah die cut panel, then stamped the fishes in the lower section of the panel. The fish were then stamped again onto masking paper and fussy cut out, each fish mask was then placed over the top of the stamped fish to protect it. The polar bear and iceberg were then stamped over the top of the fishes approx half way down.

I stamped the iceberg and bear onto masking paper and fussy cut them out, and covered them on the panel as well. On the panel I lightly drew some icebergs in the background; whilst everything was protected I coloured the icebergs and the water with white distress ink to give it a base coat, then added pencil work over the top. Everything else was completed using pencils, starting with the white pencil. When everything was finished I removed the masks and fussy cut around the icebergs. I glued the iceberg scene and moon flat onto the sky panel. The panel was them matted onto a white scalloped square and funky foam was added to the back to give it dimension, then added to the card front.
