As you can see, I have used four of the five colors and they blend so well together. This new Under the Sea stamp set is perfect for a masculine and beach themed projects. This set is perfect for those of you who scrap and need images to go with a Sea World visit!!!
I began by stamping several images of the dolphins and I used one of the images as a stencil. I cut out where the gray ink is and sponged in some gray and black. Then I added a bit of coloring with my markers of pale grays and a dark gray. Next came the ocean and I began in the back with the dark colors. I worked my way forward with lighter shades. A quick color of the sky and some gel pen strokes on the water finished the image. Oh, I did use a bit of pink inside the dolphins mouth too. I accented the eyes with a black dot and then die cut the image with the stitched ovals. I stamped the sentiment with black ink on white card stock and die cut it with the Pennants die set. I then embossed the image and sponged the edge with the aqua ink. A few more layers of black, bulap and beach paper finished my layers. I then added a few shells finished everything off.
