Sea of Textures, Just Add Ink #407

This card is made with another one of the brand new stamp/die bundles from the new Stampin Up Annual catalog. These ocean/underwater sets have been hugely popular!
I pulled out 2 retiring colors to add to this. I am so sad they are leaving, they are two of my favorite colors and I use them a lot. Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise.
I also used, Whisper white, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, blueberry bushel (new incolor) and black.

The darker blue is from the Blue Brusho, I just sprinkled a tiny tiny bit in two places and used my Aqua Painter to move it around.

Before I go on, here is the challege from JAI for this week.
And you can check out the team's projects and the rest that are posted, right here.

The O on mine is of course, the Octopus.   I also LOVE the die for the netting, there is a stamp as well. Think about all the ways to use those. You could just stamp for texture, or stamp and emboss or as I did just die cut the netting. I used vellum here, but you can use any color, maybe Crumb Cake for rope? The sentiment here comes from Varied Vases, I wanted to keep it simple.

I stamped the green sea vegetation, then die cut more stuff and put it under the netting. The sand dollars are adorable, or you could just use the little star on the inside on your project.  But there are way more great ways to use this set already just from the demo's that have gotten it.  Be sure, I'll be doing more, next up a card to do in my class.
