Sweet Stamp Shop Sept Release - Day 3

Welcome back SSS fans!!  Hello to Day #3 for the new release blog hop!  Today we are focusing on another awesome set - Dream Ocean.  I'm your first stop today :) .  Here is my card for this dreamy set Dream Ocean.




This card was fun to make.  It is relaxing to looking at these colors.  These images looked like they were just sitting in shallow beach water.  I actually did some masking with  the snapshot fun dies.  I die cut from the die some masking paper and created my scene here, and then I "fussy cut" the whole image out. All my inking for the contrasting colors from "sand" to "water" are Memento Inks - Toffee Crunch, Teal Zeal, and Summer Sky.  My patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye.  The colors were perfect with my "picture" I created.  I added some stickles to the starfish, and glossy accents for extra dimension on the sand dollar.  



To finish off the card - I added some stitched borders from Basic Grey, some twine and a key that I thought would add to the "serene" feel.  Hope you all like it!!  OK - I can't keep you any longer!  Time to turn you loose onto the oh so awesome Stephanie.  Thank you to all that has left wonderful comments!!  YOU are the ones that inspire US!  



See you all soon!!!
