I’m so excited to start the My Favorite Things June Release Countdown with you today! For my first project, I will be showcasing the new Birdie Brown stamp set called Friends with Fins. As we can always expect from Birdie Brown, this set is absolutely adorable and I can’t imagine aquatic animals cuter than this!
I’ve picked up three underwater friends to color for this card and I chose the two dolphins and the killer whale. I stamped them in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers, then used the coordinating Die-namics to die cut them out.
Next, it’s all about scene building which is the best part! The background was first ink blended with distress oxide inks and then stamped with water with the Whimsical Wave Background. This lift some ink off the background to create a soft pattern. Then, I used the little school of fish stamps from the set to add some fishes to the background.
For the ocean floor I used the new Under the Sea Die-namics. Everything you see die cut here is from this die set, and I simply a little coloring with my copics and some watercolor plant splatter to enhance each piece before assembling it all together. Isn’t it cool? I love how everything is part of this underwater scene building set!
