Ocean Blue

Today, I decided to work with a monochromatic blue color scheme:

Ocean Breeze

I played with the new Butterfly Field stamp, love this one, stamped it with a delicate sea breeze ink and it came out pretty light and dainty looking.

I took patterned paper and stamped it with the Silhouette Grass stamp and colored in my larger butterfly with TH inks.

And what was I trying to do with all of my pearls? I was imagining that the Silhouette Grass was sitting in the ocean.....you know...like ocean seaweed.....and the deep blue pearls were little tricklets or bubbles of water ascending upwards...haha...........I daydream A LOT!!

Enjoy!
