MFT August Release Countdown--Day 2

Two more countdown days until MFT's August Release! All new products will go
on sale Tuesday, August 2nd at 10PM EST! Have you got your wish lists ready?

Today I'm sharing Soak Up the Sun, a stamp set with underwater and
on-the-water fun. And really, how much fun can you have in a banana boat?

The ocean background is Whimsical Waves, that was white embossed on
a piece of watercolor card stock and ink distressed, then water spattered.
The panel was cut with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, then adhered
to a white top folding card.

The adventurous monkeys and all the fishies were stamped and colored
with Copics, then cut with the coordinating dies.. They were all adhered on
the panel with dimensional adhesive and finished off with the sentiment. 

And although you can't see it, the final detail was to add a bit of shimmer
on the boat and fish with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.
