Awhile back Torico had posted some of her sketches on her Facebook page and this adorable boy and his puppy got lots of attention! So many of you said that it needed to be made into a stamp and we agreed. Not only is this mini set great by itself but it can also be combined with many of Torico’s other TSG stamp sets for even more versatility!
Float My Boat is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 9 stamps and will sell for $7.
I wanted to make the waves out of cardstock, with the negative scallops, but my puches don't make them, unfortunately. I thought that the eyelet scallops would look fun too, and so that's what I did.
I cut out the boy's hands, so that he appears to be reaching into the sea. I stamped some fishies from Best Fishes, as if they're coming closer to meet the lil' guy :)
I also stamped the birds from By The Sea, on the sky. There are birds images in the new set too, but I wanted to show you the versatility of the sets.
The clouds are cut out of the cardstock, and dotted with Ice Stickles.
Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts (navy blue, teal), white; paper: My Mind's Eye; stamps: There She Goes (Float My Boat, Best Fishes, By The Sea); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copics; burlap; baker's twine; sewing machine; button; Ice Stickles; paper piercer
I used SSSC127 for my layout:
