Sushi Anyone?!

Hello!

Don't forget to sign up for my Blog Candy!!


I hope you are all doing well today. I have been busy packing and sorting things for our move next month. I try to do a little bit every day, just so that it's not quite so overwhelming when it's time to go.
Of course, I made some time to stamp this morning, however! I was going through my binder of clear stamps and saw my "Sushi Platter set" from Stampendous and realized that it had been entirely too long since I've inked it up. I also wanted to do the SCS color challenge yesterday using Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange and Summer Sun. Those colors made me think of summer, which made me think of the ocean, which made me think of fish. See how it all came together? This set is one that I really like; but don't use often simply because I have a hard time figuring out how to color the images. Today I decided to stamp the images and then used masks to cover up the areas before sponging bashful blue over it. I also used a bit of Orange and Olive ink around the edges for a bit of contrasting color. Like I said I'm still experimenting with it; but that's ok...experimenting is good! I think that I will probably try to do some more with it tomorrow, depending on what the WSC is.
Ok, so I'm off to do some layouts and some more packing. Have a great day!
