Together we are an ocean...

Hi friends!

Today is the last day to take advantage of FREE SHIPPING on all orders at Colorado Craft Company. It's also the last day to participate in the Way of Water release blog hop for a chance to win your choice of one of the new nautical themed stamp sets by Anita Jeram. The 6x6 Mermaid and Whale stamp set basically creates a mini coloring page with just a single press of the stamp. I did cut some stars out of the sky on the clear stamp before inking this up so I would have the option to color a day scene. As an added bonus, the stars actually make for great sand dollars on the beach too. By making them their own individual stamps I feel like I'm stretching the versatility of the set a bit further, which is always a nice bonus. Even though I don't usually create square cards, I didn't fight it with this image and the completed card is a 5.5x5.5 size. The sentiment is included in this set as well and I simply stamped it on a scrap of white card stock in a blue ink that matched my card base. I don't know about you but I think this new look from Anita Jeram is a lot of fun and a great addition to all of her adorable critters.  :)

Have a good one!
