The Sea of Life

One of the reasons that I love being on the design team for Stampendous is all the great companies that we get product from!
For this last release we were very lucky to get some beautiful patterned paper from Graphic45!


This paper matched perfectly with so many of the fun Summer stamps that Fran created for the April release.

This week the team is sharing some of our projects that we created with Graphic45 paper!

Here is my first project that showcases Steampunk Splash from The Voyage beneath the Sea Collection and the new Jumbo Mermaid Friends Stamp set and matching dies.


I colored the images with colored pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.


The sentiment is from the new Ocean Wisdom perfectly clear stamp set.


Stop by the Stampendous Blog for links to more inspiration all week long!

The only thing that is better than G45 papers and Stampendous stamps is when Stampendous and G45 have a blog hop!
