So swim along and get ready to SEA some inspiration!

For my first project I used the Zen Ocean stamp set to create this fun Distress Ink watercolor card. I also used the Hugs Honey Cut layered die to cut my title. I popped the title up with some foam tape. Coloring this Zen Ocean image was so relaxing, just like Adult coloring books. The details are amazing on this nearly 6" circle stamp. The possibilities are endless using this as a background stamp for all your summer crafting projects.


 For my second card I created this multi layered card using the A7 double stitched frame dies for my background and the Ocean Bliss stamp set.  For this card I created the background and colored the image with the amazing Distress Oxide inks ( also available in the Honey Bee shop ) The background is made with broken china, cracked pistachio and faded jeans. If you have not tried these beautiful inks, you should.  This mermaid in this set is so lovely.
 

For my last card I used a combination of both stamp sets. Again they are Ocean Bliss, with this lovely Mermaid sitting on a rock and the Zen Ocean set, this time using several of the individual stamps included with the Large background stamp to create a 3 panel card. I colored all these images with the Distress Oxide inks.  I love the soft colors of these inks when applied like watercolors. I used the Sending you Sentiments to create my card title.  Melissa has created so many fun title sets to mix and match with all of the amazing Honey Bee stamps.
