Picture Perfect meets Pals Paper Arts




I'm so excited about sharing a little bit of the ocean in this week's Pals Paper Art Challenge. It's a simple design, but so amazing too. 


Here is the Sketch.


I started by stamping the starfish using the Picture Perfect stamp set.  This is a beautiful 18-part stamp set that uses multi-step stamping to create stunning images.




Here is a closer look at my Starfish which took 2-layers of stamping. I stamped the first layer in Soft Sky, and the second layer in Basic Gray. 

TIP: I used my bone folder to prop up the starfish which almost makes it look like a real one!  I glued the starfish in place with Stampin' Dimensionals to maintain the shape.



Notice the wonderful transparent layer that the starfish is floating on? It's an exclusive printed acetate card included in the Sale-A-Bration Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection. I used the full-size of the card as a background. So easy!

TIP: The acetate card is glued down with glue dots placed under the starfish and sentiment.  That way it looks like the white flowers are "floating."




Here is the stamp set. Love it!
