Whimsy Stamps June New Release - Day 2 Inspiration!

Hello friends!
Welcome to DAY 2 of the Whimsy Stamps (Clearly Whimsy Stamps edition) June NEW RELEASE!
Starting Monday, June 6th, today and tomorrow, I will be sharing inspiration with you for each new clear stamp set and Shapeology craft dies that are being released this month which will be available for purchase at the Whimsy Stamps store starting this WEDNESDAY, June 8th!

In case you have missed any of my prior inspiration posts:
Monday, June 6th post (Day 1 inspiration) - Need More, Squeezed + Squeezed coordinating dies, Paper Packs + Enamel Dots

Today we are introducing the Ocean Journeys + Ocean Journeys Sentiments and Sentiment Banner Dies

Here's the card that I made using these fun new products:
I thought that this stamp set would be fun to create a nice watercolor scene with, so I took out some watercolor paper and die cut a piece out with the Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies.  I used the curly line image in this set and embossed it over the watercolor paper with clear embossing powder.  When I added the watercolor to it, the embossed areas resist the watercolor and show up on the design through it.  I have used my watercolor to create my own scene.

For the sailboat, I took the image from the Ocean Journeys set and stamped it, colored it with my Copic markers and popped it up over my scene with some foam tape.  I also used some black water proof ink to stamp the flying birds from the set as well.

For the sentiment, I took the new Sentiment Banner Dies and cut out a piece from vellum and folded it along the scored marks.  I took the sentiment from the Ocean Journeys Sentiments and embossed it gold embossing powder along with the hearts from the image set.  I just used some Ranger liquid glue to attach the ends of the vellum banner over the boat and popped it up.

I've attached the watercolor paper over a piece of gold metallic card stock and then attached that to an A2 sized white card base.

Here's a closer look at some of the details in the card.
You can see here that on the boat I have used my gold metallic gel pen to color in a portion of the boat.  You can also better see the gold embossing and gold metallic paper.

Be sure to pop over to the Whimsy Stamps blog  to see a peek at the creations with links to the other guest designer's and design team's blogs. There will be chances to win prizes, so make sure you join in today and every day for all the new release festivities!  

I hope you've enjoyed my inspiration today!
Thanks so much for dropping by and I'll see you again tomorrow!  :)
