Materials List

  • Card
  • Colors
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Card embellishment poppers


  1. Prepare the background card on which you wish to mount up your dolphins. Size is entirely up to your preference or space available.

  2. Cut out 2 dolphins pictures.

  3. Cut out a couple of wave patterns to mount up under your dolphins.

  4. Shade your background card -- I choose crayons for my background. I used a light blue for the sky & a medium blue for the sea.

  5. Then color your waves with a variety of blues so that you give the idea of volume & light.

  6. Now you move on to coloring your dolphins. I used a variety of greys. I also used a couple of markers to emphasize some outlines.

  7. Finally mount your wave pieces onto card embellishers poppers so that these pop up onto your background & give the idea of 3D art.

  8. Once the waves are in place mount your dolphins onto card embellishers poppers too & place them at the centre of your picture.
