Today, I'm featuring the Briny Blue stamp set. If you love sea creatures and the ocean, you are going to love this set! It's also an amazing companion set for Surf & Turf. Since my son is a huge fan of The Octonauts, he flipped out when he saw this set and named all of the creatures by their scientific names or character names on the show.


The orca is attached to the misted wave panel and the dolphin is tucked in behind it. The waves were cut with the Borders 1 dies. I shaded both the orca and dolphin with distress markers and a watercolour brush. The splashes are second generation stamped and I added some sequins to emphasize the fintastic sentiment. ;)

We have a bonus giveaway for you. Stop by the Paper Smooches Blog for your chance to win a Scor-Buddy! You will find the details HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of the Briny Blue stamp set!
