I See Seashells at the Seashore
Hello stampers! I hope you had an enjoyable and safe holiday. It's a little busier than usual week here as Jack's cousin is staying with us. Every summer she spends a week or so with us and we try to do some fun things for them. On Monday we went to see the movie, Despicable Me 3. It's a funny movie, good for kids and adults. I am hoping later in the week to take them mini golfing. We'll see how it goes.
I have to say that when I saw the colors in this week's challenge, I thought of shells. Why? No clue. But shells came to mind. So I inked up the new So Many Shells stamp set and had fun with it. Some I did the two-step stamping, and some I didn't. Whatever I was feeling, I went with it. I used the new Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon for some softness. I LOVE it's texture and how it feels!
I also thought it would be fun to play with the background too. You know me. Anyway I can spice up a background, I do! This time I used the set of lines from the Tabs For Everything stamp set and just inked it up and kept turning it to cover the entire piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.
It reminds me of a parquet floor almost. Too fun! Since this stamp set is photopolymer, it took no time at all! Remember to always think outside the box! Life's too short for you to stay in it. Happy Stamping!
