Stamp Review Crew The Open Sea Edition

It's time for a new hop of The Stamp Review Crew!   This time we are featuring one of my favorite sets, The Open Sea!  :)   Remember, if you get lost or turned around at any point in the hop we have a main landing page for you!


I'm a bit obsessed with watercolor paper lately.  I've made a lot of cards with this set, but nothing like this I think.  I used my reinkers and Aquapainter to do a watercolor wash on the background.   Then I stamped my ship on watercolor paper and used the Aquapainter and reinkers again for that.   I'm a bit impatient for this technique as I hate waiting for it to dry, but it ends up worth it in the end!

Stamps:  The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Staz On black plus Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky, and Crumb Cake reinkers
Paper:  Basic Black, Watercolor Paper
Tools:  Big Shot, Starburst framelits, 2 1/2 circle die, Aquapainter, Distress Tool
Accessories:  Neutrals Candy Dots, Linen Thread, Brights Designer Buttons
