Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp May Release Blog Hop - Oceans of Love

I am so excited! It is time for us to celebrate the May release for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. On today's blog hop you will SEA a lot of WHALEY amazing projects. Sit back and enjoy this amazing release.

To recap this amazing release, we started the previews off with three gorgeous sets called Serena Sparkles, Treena Twinkles and a background set The Ocean.

Next we featured those darling Krafty Kids Lucas and Lulu along with a few ocean friends in Keep Swimming!

 Then there was a lovely mermaid set called Mermaid Friends.

Finally we finished out the week with a super cute of underwater creatures called Oceans of Love. This is the set that I am featuring on our hop today.

I love the sweet sea creatures it this set. They are fun and easy to colour and great for fussy cutting to add to a fun ocean background.

I again used the distress inks for by background, however I wanted to incorporate colours that were found in the fun Photoplay paper Summer Day Dreams.

For this background I started with four inks (Twisted Citron, Peacock feathers, Abandoned Coral and Carved Pumpkin). I applied these colours directly to my nonstick craft sheet and sprayed the ink with water. I took my water colour paper and laid it on top of the watered distress ink. Once I picked it up, I used a paper towel to pull up any splotches of ink then heat set. I used the remain ink on my mat to add the little splotches of colour. Heat setting in between. After to pulling in a darker blue, I added the Mermaid lagoon to my craft sheet, added water and dipped my distressed background into the ink for additional blue.

Once it was dry I used my circle die and cut out the section of the background I wanted to showcase on my card.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.
