(((VIDEO))) Geometric Ocean Background

Jellyfish Card by Jess Gerstner for Create a Smile Stamps Glowing Seaside and Going Graphic

Hello crafty friends! It's Jess and today I have a card and a video with Going Graphic and Glowing Seaside.






For today's cards I wanted to try creating a background with Going Graphic since I hadn't played with the set yet. I really liked the look of the solid triangles but thought it would be fun to try some less expected so I spritzed them with water and create the softer more flow-ly triangles.

After creating the abstract background I stamped the jellyfish directly on top since jellyfish are often transparent. I watercolored my critters with Gansai Tambi watercolors which includes a white glitter color. For a full tutorial check out the video.


I love the little enamel hearts from the Frosty Fun Kit that are not available separately. They were the perfect finishing touch for this card.

Use a black pen to add back details such as eyes and mouth to critters after watercoloring to give them extra pop.
