Hello Ocean Buddy

It's been awhile since I used my Ocean Buddies set from TAC. I love it because the puckered lips on the fish in that set crack me up! This was also a great time for me to use the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder. I inked up my fish with VersaMagic Seabreeze, then went around the edges with VersaMagic Spring Pansy. Both are in the Pastel Dew Drop set so it was easy to ink up. Once I stamped it, I added a little googly eye and inked around the image with VersaMagic Aloe Vera. If you look on the green cardstock, I inked up the waves stamp with Aloe Vera and stamped it on there. I like running the DCWV paper through the Cuttlebug. If you are not familiar with DCWV paper, it has texture to it already. If you click on the card, you will get a bigger image so you can see what I'm talkin' about. Running it through the Cuttlebug not only embossed the tiny bubbles on there, but it distressed the paper in a few areas as well. This card has a ton of texture on it. Happy Stamping!
