Waves of the Ocean Suite

waves of the ocean suite 1

Anyone who has read my blog for awhile knows that I love anything related to the sea and I can't resist a suite that even hints of the ocean. So when I saw the Waves of the Ocean Suite I had to have it all. The Waves of Inspiration stamp set has a wave stamp that is the most incredibly detailed that I have seen in a long time.

And the Waves of the Ocean DSP is just amazing! The concept artist who created it did a series of paint pours over canvas and then photographed them to get the effect of waves.

The Wave Dies can create overlays for the stamped wave and if you use the coordinating foil package that comes in Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy and Silver, you can make some beautiful wave images.

I chose one of the Coastal Cabana designs of the Waves of the Ocean DSP patterns and used the Stamparatus to stamp it in Bermuda Bay and then at Pacific Point and Night of Navy by adding those inks to shadowed parts of the stamp using an ink dauber and stamping each time. You end up with a really "in depth" image.

I stamped a couple of the Pelican on the Pilings images in Soft Suede and a couple of the sentiments and used the Wave dies to die cut both of those. 

I die cut one wave overlay in Night of Navy foil and one in Coastal Cabana foil as well as cutting a 5 1/4" x 4" backing for the main image from each of those foils as well. 

The sentiment backings were die cut from the corresponding foils as well using the large label die from the Wave Dies. Then they were all assembled as shown.

On Wednesday, I will get to see the new Annual Catalogue for 2022/23! So exciting. I will also be finding out what is retiring from the old Annual Catalogue! What do you think will be going. From now until May 2 will be your last chance to pick up items that you want that will be retiring. Also some prices will be going up in the new catalogue, so you might want to stock up on some things. More details on Wednesday!
