I used that technique for the background on today's card, using Stampin' Up!'® rubber stamp set Sea Street (wood or clear).
Instead of using a multi-coloured ink pad like in the tutorial, I simply used Coastal Cabana first, then did another round with Bermuda Bay. Finally I sponged some Daffodil Delight in the gaps. I love the look - it does look like sun shining through the sea.
I stamped the fish over the background and then the Octopus in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut out the octopus using the 2 1/2" circle punch and the black card using the Starburst framelits
I hope you've enjoyed today's post. Be sure to come back tomorrow as I am taking part in a blog hop! I'm really excited about the project I have to show you!
