Under The Sea

2 Comments

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today with some Under The Sea fun. I used my new stamp set, Anchors Aweigh, to create a gift tin you can fill with shells, beach glass or even just candy! I found the metal tin at the Dollar Spot at Target and it already had a chalkboard circle on the lid.

I stamped the lighthouse and birds with the Hero Arts White Unicorn ink and set it aside to dry. Then I trimmed a piece of 12×12 blue cardstock to fit the tin. I started stamping with my Distress Inks and the fish, starfish and coral stamps to make an underwater scene. I adhere the paper to the tin with roller adhesive and then added pearls as bubbles.

Here’s a closeup of the lid and side.
