You Matter

I am the hostess for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststameprs this week.  Our site was chosen by our guest designer and it overflows with inspiration!  I chose THIS photo to inspire my card.  

To create my ocean scene I blended distress inks for the sea with the Life Changing Blender Brushes.  I then spritzed the Ocean Dreams background stamp with water and stamped onto the ocean.   I masked off the sky and added the sun with a sneak peek item from the new Picket Fence Release (Stop by tomorrow to see all the new goodies!).   Next, I filled my ocean scene with images and a sentiment from the super fun Dose of Vitamin Sea stamp set by Picket Fence Studios.  Since the birds are outline stamps I filled in their bodies with black sharpie marker to create silhouettes.  This week Picket Fence Studios debuted coordinating dies to go with many of their stamps sets so no fussy cutting needed for this cute whale.  The Dose of Vitamin Sea Coordinating Die set includes both whales and an adorable waterspout die.   

Thanks so much for stopping by, it's true, you matter more to me than all the fish in the sea!!!
