TST#109 I Sea it's your Birthday!

Yes...Sea!  I am really having a lot of fun experimenting with this stamp set.  If you take the time you not only end up with the shells stamped, but you can sculpt them to give them a more realistic look...even if the colours are out of this world.

Today at Try Stampin on Tuesday Mynnette has provided us with another great sketch.
I actually started out thinking flowers, just like the sketch, but ended up going with the shells from By the Seashore.

 This is the colour that we have been waking up to most mornings.  I say most mornings, because with the last week or so we have had some terrible storms and the gulf has been brown because the waters have been so stirred up.

Once you have stamped the shells use a sharp tool, I used my piercing tool and start to shape your shells.  I also added a little bit of shadow on the shells as well to give them more character.

I hope you like what I have come up with, now its your turn.  Need a little more inspiration?  Hop on over to the Try Stampin site and see what the other great Designers have in store for you.

Thanks for stopping by.


Your comments mean a lot to me, so please take the time to leave one.
