Creative Nugget: The new My Lifeguard stamp set takes center stage on this Center Step card while The Mighty Sea was used to fill in the sides. Care was taken to line up the horizon line, and as you can see, these two stamp sets coordinate beautifully together. Reeves watercolor paints were used to color the scene which was stamped in Versafine ink on watercolor paper. After the paint dried, real sand was used for texture on the sandy portions of the scene. Flip flops are the perfect beach foot wear, so several of the pairs of flip flops from the Flip Flop Fun stamp set were also watercolored, cut with the matching Flip Flop Dies, and added to the scene along with several tiny shells to finish the card.
The Ocean Treasures stamp set was used to create my second sample which was made for one of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at Splicoaststampers.
Here are the new stamp sets and one older set from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store that were used to create these samples:
