Ocean Commotion


When I randomly opened my brand new catalog this set was the first one I saw. I let out a little squeak of delight and knew this was going on my first order. It's worth getting just for the fab flourish!
Delicate Dots designer paper was used along with Whisper White, Cameo Coral, and Bashful Blue. I clear embossed the swirl on the blue, the sea life was embossed using clear powder and Blush Blossom and Certainly Celery craft inks. I sponged in addition color with coral for the fish snd one seahorse and blue for the other seahorse. I added some eyelet "bubbles" and white gel pen dots.
