The Birch stamp is used for water in this seaside scene
Adaptation and versatility - two of my favourite words when it comes to crafting.  That's because they usually hang out with creativity and good value!  It's also fun to find new ways to use what we have in our craft rooms.

For this card, I used the Birch background stamp in a different way.  Using white ink on the Pacific Point cardstock gives an impression of water.  I inked up the stamp and then pressed  half of the cardstock (with even pressure) down onto it which provides a horizon.

I stamped the yacht and lighthouse onto Whisper White cardstock with Memento black ink and then coloured with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  The coordinating Smooth Sailing dies in the bundle (buy as a bundle for 10% saving) made it very easy to cut them out before adhering to the card front.

I also stamped the birds with same black ink.

I'd like to thank the very creative Jay Soriano of Mitosu Crafts for the idea of using the seaweed die to create waves.  I like using a darker colour towards the bottom (or foreground) to provide balance to the scene.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
