My friend Janet's visiting this week so there's no way I was going to get out of playing along with her weekly challenge...really though, I would have played along whether she was here or not. :)

This week's challenge is Under the Sea (I've stretched it to About the Sea, but Janet gave me the a-ok for it!). This darling penguin stamp is a Snag 'em Stamp that I've had for quite some time. I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Gina K pure luxury white and coloured him with copics. I know, I know...I used a mitt full of copics on this little guy, but I'm really loving the depth of colour I get when I use several shades. 

I just recently picked up some white flocking at my LSS Right At Home Scrapbooking, so I used it on his tummy. It doesn't really show in the photo, but it's super cute in real life! He's cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto baja breeze then chocolate chip. 

The patterned paper coordinates with the stamp and I've had it for just as long...never quite knowing what to do with it til now. I ran a piece of baja blue through the D'vine Swirls cuttlebug folder then tied some ribbon I picked up at the Paper Source this week (the shade is called Lake). Last but not least...I added some bling with two 7mm Baby Blue Bella Bonbons

Stay cool!

Thanks for stopping by!
