The Alley Way Stamps - Sneak Peek #2


How is everyone doing? It's the last week of the semester and i am so ready for the end! Just a few more days!!! :D But it's almost time for the May release over at The Alley Way Stamps!! I am just loving this release, all the sets go together so well!! I'm showing a sneak of Something's Fishy!!

I started by pressing a few ink pads onto my craft mat and then spritzing a little water. I pressed a white card base into the ink, then set it aside to dry.

While my card base was drying i stamped the mama and baby whales on some card stock that has a shimmer to it. I used a versamark marker to add a little shading to the whales, then i used a white opaque pen to add a some dots to the whales.

When my card base was dry i placed a wave stencil over it and sponged on some white pigment ink. Then i used spray ink to flick spots all over the card base.

I added the whales with foam tape and last stamped the 'I Love You a Tone' sentiment to the bottom right! Aren;t these whales so cute!! I just love them!!
