First, Claire's set was fun to work with, despite the fact that it is still summer here in New York.  I used versamark and the Foliage art stencils on the background. I stamped the flower portion on the red card stock.  Then I added some gold glitter to the center. The leaves were stamped on white card stock with the pine ink. 

Here is my first card using Todd Turtle. I absolutely love turtles and when we were in Hawaii, one of my favorite memories was swimming with the turtles.  They are so beautiful and graceful! Here is my first card.  I stamped the turtle with black ink on ocean mist card stock.  I added a layer of black to make it pop! 

This card was super fun to make - using glossy paper and alcohol markers. I made this a blue crab, even though he isn't blue <wink> anymore! He was mounted to the card with some foam squares after I fussy cut him out!

Nothing could be a more perfect fit that the Water Droplets stencil  with my last three stamp sets: Vicky Mermaid, Karen Mermaid and now Todd Turtle.  It was easy to use a dauber on the background with the ocean mist, blue lagoon and turquoise sea inks.  Those colors, now that I think of it, are made for these sets too! The tag is stamped with back ink and tied off with some twine for a nautical look. I used a white gel pen on the dots for some dimension. The starfish was colored with spectrum noir markers (just a hint of color for some depth).

I used some glossy paper on this main image - with alcohol markers and black ink on the floral bunches and sentiments. I love the background so much!
