Oceans of Love...

Hello, hello!

Well here we are at the fourth and final day of May previews for The Greeting Farm and we are wrapping things up with the Happy to Sea You set. This stamp set is chalk full of various sea creatures that are not only fun to mix and match with each other but they also coordinate wonderfully with past sets like Make a Splash and Little Mermaids as well. I was so inspired by all of the different card making possibilities within this set that I actually made four cards, the rest of which can be found over on the TGF blog today. The one I chose to share here first uses all the little critters that can be found in shallower waters. I used masking to group them together and then challenged myself to try and recreate the look of light reflecting under water. It's not perfect, but I learned a lot and I still think it generally gives the scene the "snorkeling in the shallows" kind of look that I was going for.  ;) 

Alrighty, you know what to do... head on over to the TGF blog for even more Happy to Sea You fishy fun from myself and my fellow Farmers. And don't forget that the entire release will be available for purchase tomorrow as well as a chance to win all four of the May stamp sets by participating in the blog hop!
