Wishing you Oceans of Joy

OK, I am kind of sorry to show you yet one more of the same design card with LLLC Snorkel Sherman stamp.. Well.. I was asked by a few people to teach a class with this card, but.. since I used the stickers from my stash and those stickers are no longer available, I had to come up with something else to create the ocean scene for Sherman :-)

Lucky me, I found a clear stamp set from Hero Arts called Oceans of Joy with all kind of sea creatures!!! It was more time consuming than using stickers of course, but I do LOVE the result!! All of the ocean scene elements are stamped and colored with Copics, cut out and covered with Crystal Lacquer.. once it was dry, I applied Crystal Stickles to everything!! They look so shiny and sparkly in real life!!! Very pretty!!! Well worth all the work!!!
