In my last post I used the whale from Just Keep Swimming and I tell you, he's a lot of fun to use to create a scene! I used Gathered Garden because some of the stamps in the set reminded me of kelp and seaweed. I also decided to resurrect an older stamping tool, the eyelet, to symbolize the bubbles that might rise to the surface if the whale were down there and following the color scheme of the challenge photo. I can tell you that if you lose one portion of the eyelet setting tool set and try to improvise, you might bang your finger with a hammer. Just sayin'....
For my second card I completely CASEd Kay Miller's idea with the Gathered Garden set layout, although I used the colors from the challenge photo. Makes a great one-layer card!
I have one other idea, but strangely the family wants dinner so I have to go cook now!
Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
