Ocean Commotion 3 Dimensional Pop Up Side Step Card

I had to try this one more time… but added a little twist… 3-D pop ups!  Borrowing the design from my magic box, I added a floating fish, seahorse and shell to this version of the Side Step Card.  Are you ready for this cool card?

ocean_stairstep_alayvonneThe colorful coral (swirl designs) were embossed in not quite navy and cameo coral classic ink, and the angel fish was embossed with basic black ink and clear embossing powder.  Sponging on layers of color with my handy dandy sponge daubers, I started with Baja Breeze Classic Ink, and then Not Quite Navy followed by Night Of Navy. After allowing the inked layers to dry for a few minutes, I wiped the entire image clean with a soft paper towel, which brought the embossed layers back to life and full color. The bubbles above the fish were made with my White Signo Gel pen.  There is a sea shell pop up right between the fish and the seahorse, but it’s tiny and hard to see in the very reflective sunlight… just realized it appears to be missing from this shot… hmmm…. where did that shell go??

Here’s another shot/close up… much better!
