I love these new dies!  Shells, turtles and the sea.  So I have been looking for something more than the dauber background I did as a sample for the July class.  I found these lovely washi tapes and blue swirls became the sea!.

I die cut the starfish from gold glitter paper but it needed some more texture, so I daubed it with some Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. Now it looks like it might have been at the bottom of the ocean!

There's also a great ocean waves frame and seagulls set for inspiration. I'm thinking black and white for it.

I'll be trying out the stamps next, especially the seahorse and starfish.
