Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Hop!

We are featuring one of my favorite bundles from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  Sea of Textures!  I love, love, love this set and everything that I have seen created with it.  This go round (I showcased this one before) I decided to try a masculine feel in neutrals, featuring a window box look.  I hope you like it!

Sahara Sand is the perfect color for sand dollars and Old Olive is the perfect color for sea kelp.

You can see everything offered in the Sea of Textures bundle below.  Note: I do have little fish in my scene, they are just pretty small and hard to spot.  I considered them as my shakers in my shaker card frame.

Using a Sponge Dauber to add color to die cuts makes them look just a little more real.  I added color to all of my die cut nets to make them look just a little more worn.

It was easiest to create a canvas to build my scene on.  I didn’t want things moving around much after I sealed it up, so I adhere them in place with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
