LDRS Creative – Let’s Shellebrate!

Hello everyone!

I am posting on the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG today using the super cute stamp set SHORE LUCKY.

Ooh I love this set; the adorable dolphin is just too cute not to use! So I decided that he would look fun as part of a kinetic/slider card with him leaping out of the sea and then back in again….but as usual my expectations exceeded my expertise and I had to change my mind. Hummmph!

So not to be completely defeated I used my stamp platform to stamp an arc of dolphins instead using my RAVEN HYBRID INKPAD. Once I was happy with the way I had arranged them I also stamped the water drops, bubbles and whale tail to create a little ‘leaping for joy’ scene if you will.   I then coloured everything with watercolour pens.

I cut my ‘joyful dolphins’ out using, appropriately, the HAPPY DAYS CIRCLE die set and matted it with black and a sheet from the gorgeous YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE 6X6 PAPER PAD.

The Shellebrate sentiment is also in the SHORE LUCKY set and I made it into a banner by stamping the waves above and below it, adding two of the little shells as a border to finish. Never underestimate the usability of tiny stamps, they can add patterns, fill in gaps and cover mistakes. I love them for ALL that....but particularly the last one!!!


Colouring paper: Watercolour
Colouring: Ecoline Pens
