Day 2- There She Goes Sneak Peeks


As great as the other two stamp sets are that There She Goes is releasing this month, this set is my favorite! I just love the ocean, the sea, and anything to do with it. Plus, it was a perfect set to watercolor with and lately, I've rediscovered this technique. The set we get the show you today is called By The Sea. I just know the DT will have some fabulous samples for you. Hopefully you just arrived from Kim's amazing blog. If not, hop on back to the TSG blog to start things off.
I first cut out some watercolor paper with my nesties lable 10 die, then I stamped the main sea image and watercolored with my aqau painter and watercolor crayons. I added the sail boat and the birds to complete the scene.


At the last moment I decided to stamp and emboss the shell image and add it on as a charm to my bow. What about the sentiment? Isn't it so beautiful and motivational. I was really drawn to it, so I used it here today.

Would you like a chance to win the By The Sea stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their By The Sea Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own By The Sea stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (May 29th) during the Release Party Chat. See you back here tomorrow. Be sure to finish the hop, off you go to the oh-so-talented, Mercy.
