June Stamp of the Month from TAC

Hi everyone! Here is the Stamp of the Month for June from The Angel Company. I was asked to design some samples around this set and wanted to show you the one's that I didn't send in.

I embossed the star fish, crab and shell in gold embossing powder then colored with gel glaze pens, which really gave them a shine! The "sand" is actually kraft card stock that I ran through the crimper. The "foam" on the water is liquid applique and the "fishing net" is magic mesh.

I used vellum as waves on this card. The foam is white ink that is applied directly to the vellum after it was torn. Again, using kraft card stock for the sand. Blue card stock from DCWV is used as the sky and I had drew some birds in.

The shells on this one are embossed with silver embossing powder.

And this one, the crab is embossed in copper. I used my crimper on some kraft card stock to simulate sand.

This is a super fun set to work with that has loads of possibilities. I can just see some fabulous scrapbook pages done with this! Actually, that top card could be done as a scrapbook page with some beachy photo's added right in. Check out the samples on TAC's home page (the stamp of the month is under promotions) to see more ideas using this set.

Have a great day!
