Hi there! I was on Altenew blog the other day sharing three cards using a new stamp set – Painted Jellyfish.Can we have a moment and talk about this stamp set? I should admit that sea life images are my weakness. I’m instantly sold when it comes to stamps of this theme. But these jellyfishes … they’re so perfectly realistic and cool. Oh boy, I cannot believe this set is real :) Jellyfishes maybe not very pleasant creatures to meat walking along sea coast.

BLACK AND GOLD

The moment I saw this set I knew I’ll do it in black and gold. I recently got addicted to black and gold card designs (you can see them here and here) and this set I just had to do this was as well.Altenew Painted Jellyfish in Gold and Black. Card by @s_shayevichI stamped the bigger jellyfish onto a white panel, stamping the bottom layer using Jet Black ink and the middle and top layers I embossed in gold, using two different gold powders of different shades. I have unhealthy amount o gold embossing powders in my stash. Got them while was looking for my perfect one. I know found the ONE (it’s a Hero Arts Gold Powder), but still  have all others. They come handy when I need different shades of gold :)Altenew Painted Jellyfish in Gold and Black. Card by @s_shayevichThe part of the sentiment then was stamped in black below the jellyfish. Then I adhered the panel onto another one, made out of Gold Mirror Cardstock, which in turn was adhered onto a black card base. I added the second part of the sentiment white embossed on a stripe of black cardstock and several sequins to finish off my card.

I really like combination of gold and black and double embossing I made for the jellyfish. In fact – you’ll see layered embossing in the following two cards as well.

WHITE EMBOSSED ON VELLUM

For second card I went for more so to speak natural design – jellyfishes in their undersea environment.

Card by @s_shayevichThey were white embossed onto a vellum and then die-cut using matching die.  Here I also used white embossing powders of different colors, I did the same for the vase here. Which is maybe hard to see on the photo. Although using only one powder would work as well, it adds some relief anyways.Altenew Painted Jellyfish, white embossing on vellum. Card by @s_shayevichOnto a white panel I created background by covering it with several shades of Distress inks (Tumbled Glass and Broken China). Then I splattered it with water using my beloved Distress Sprayer, Distress inks reacted with water and moved, I then blotted them off with paper towel to dry. When my panel was completely dry I white embossed the sentiment and foam mounted it onto a white card base.Altenew Painted Jellyfish, white embossing on vellum.

LAYERED CLEAR EMBOSSING

For the third card I also went for undersea scene, but this time I wanted to recreate a more realistic look of these creatures, which are transparent. I did this by layering clear embossing and inking the background between layers. I once showed this technique here. Now I’m thinking maybe I need to make another video, with voice over and using jellyfishes..Altenew Painted Jellyfish, layered clear embossing and inking. Card by @s_shayevichFirst I slightly inked a white panel with Worn Lipstick and Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink, let ink dry completely and clear embossed the outline images of jellyfishes. Then I inked over with the same Distress inks again. I clear embossed the bottom layer of the creatures and again inked over with Distress inks. I skipped the middle layer and clear embossed the top one. And again I covered the whole panel with Distress inks, this time using Picked Raspberry in the spot I used Worn Lipstick before. Altenew Painted Jellyfish, layered clear embossing and inking.

Then I splattered water, let the inks move and blotted them off to dry. I white embossed the sentiment and foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. And again clear droplet were my embellishments of choice.Altenew Painted Jellyfish, layered clear embossing and inking. Card by @s_shayevichI really like how the these turned out, with different color for each layer. I think it replicates to some level the look they have in real life.Altenew Painted Jellyfish, layered clear embossing and inking.

    WOW, Wow, wow! I’m in love with every single one of your cards. I’m becoming increasingly more taken with sea life as well. I’ve always had a passion for sharks and whales, but have recently become intrigued with octopus and jellyfish. This set is the perfect jellyfish!
