Can You Hear the Ocean?

Can You Hear the Ocean?

Of course it’s just a myth that if you hold a conch shell to your ear, you can hear the sound of the ocean. My sister-in-law (who loves the ocean) is celebrating her birthday this week, and this Gifts from the Sea stamp set had the perfect images for her birthday card.

I used the Sea Scape Impressabilities die as a stencil with Close to Cocoa ink on textured Creamy Caramel card stock for the background. The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored in with Copic markers. I made a Chocolate Chip mat for my LabelS Two die-cut by tracing the outside edge of the die with a pencil and cutting it out by hand (thanks for the tip, Beate!).

Thanks for stopping by!
