Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.
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.

Oh, Paula, what a gorgeous card! Your coloring is out of this world (I've always loved your gift of coloring), and I love the masculine touch with the burlap and bitty shells. Stunning and so precious with this Scripture verse! Hugs, sweet friend!
