Sea of Textures for Freshly Made Sketches and Double PCC Points


Happy Monday to you! I had fun this weekend visiting my youngest daughter and watching her perform in Grease in a local theatre production in her town.

Now, I am back, ready to face the whirlwind that is the last week of the old Annual Catalogue and the first week of the New Annual Catalogue. Have you got your wishlist ready? Do you even have your catalogue yet? The first batch went out with the early May orders, but let me know if you would like one and I'll see that you get one as soon as I can. Or you could come to my Catalogue Launch on June 9th and pick up one then.

Freshly Made Sketches had a unique sketch this week for their challenge:

Wanting to try out some more of my new stamp sets, I thought that the Sea of Textures Stamp Set* would be perfect for the vertical elements of this sketch! Here's how it turned out:

  • I'm a pushover for anything remotely nautical or beachy, so this Sea of Textures* set is right up my alley! And throw in some unique texture stamps and I'm "hooked"!  The long strands of seaweed were perfect for the vertical pieces in this design and I used some old and some new "sea colours" together! My goodness, we have some beautiful blues, greens and teals in our collection. I used the new Soft Seafoam* and Mint Macaron*, plus the old Island Indigo, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide and they all look amazing together here!
  • The background paper is from the new Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper* which features not only some of those amazing colours, but also some great textures, not just for sea designs. Some are generic enough to use for many different themes. I used one of the designs here.
  • The sentiment is from this Sea of Textures stamp set* as well, with one of the fish skin-like textures stamped off in the background of it. It's diecut using one of my retired old favourites, the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits.
  • I added some starfish and a clam shell from the retiring Seaside Shore stamp set. Do you have that one? If you want it, I will be submitting my last order tomorrow so contact me before then. I used some 1/4" Copper Trim, opened out like a fish net as the final embellishment.
