A fin-tastic day

Here's hoping that you have a fin-tastic Monday! I was using my shimmer mist sprays to make this background. After the ink dried, I stamped the swirl background by Impression Obsession over the tope with VersaFine black ink. It is hard to see the shimmer on the picture, but the background has a definite shimmer to it! I stamped the dolphin by Stamp Shoppe Creations and colored him with Copic Markers. Then I cut out the square, but cut around the head, so the dolphin looks like it is jumping out of the water. The I used a few swirl die cuts to look like a splash. The sentiment is also a Stamp Shoppe Creations stamp and I cut it out with a Nestabilities label die. Leaving the die on the paper, I sponged with a Blue Distress Ink. Thanks for stopping by!

We will be using our own mixed colors and smooshing a background for our stamped images as well as other techniques. Leaf stamp is Penny Black. Sentiment comes from Flourishes rubber stamps. Paper is from Robin's Nest. Cut outs are using the Nestabilities, Martha Stewart border punch and Cuttlebug background embossing folder. Lots of fun techniques in this class.
