I think I might be addicted to this sheet of rubber from Time To Stamp/I Brake For Stamps!! lol I really, really like beach scenes - they remind me of one of the coolest Bible verses: Proverbs 8:29, talking about creation "when He gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep His command, and when He marked out the foundations of the earth." And the built-in collage effect makes these so easy to use, especially paired with interesting backgrounds.

Cards measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Both cards use a current TechniqueJunkies newsletter technique called Reinker Splash. The more times you do it with the same color, the lighter the background will get. I really liked the bold blues in this first generation piece. I used Stampin' Up!'s Buckaroo Blue and Night of Navy, and there is some silver mixed in but it probably doesn't show at all in the scans.
All stamps used are from the same sheet. On the top card the blue ink is Stampin' Up!'s Buckaroo Blue, and the brads on the bottom one are irredescent blue metal.
Thanks for looking!
