Oh Snap! ctd281

I am reaching for my stamps that I've been avoiding now that I have discovered the joys of baby oil. This adorable turtle is from The Stamp of Life.  It's a two step stamp, where the turtle is one stamp and it's shell is another.  I only used the colored pencils/baby oil treatment on the turtle.  The shell stamp is a solid with a design.  And this is my first time to use my speech bubble die from Lawn Fawn.

I am entering this into Color Throwdown #281. The colors remind me of the Hawaiian sunsets, which reminded me of snorkeling in HI, which reminded me of all the sea turtles I saw while snorkeling, which reminded me of this great stamp set I have.  I love it when things happen like this!

And Seize the Birthday has a Anything Goes Challenge, so I am in!

  1. Such a cute little fella and that huge speech bubble is so funky! I've not tried baby oil to mix pencils I usually use some white odorless mineral spirits (gamsol), maybe I should give the baby oil a try.

  2. How fun! Love the little pearl "bubbles." Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!

  3. This is so adorable. Love how you used the pearls for bubbles. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  4. What a cute card. Love the speech bubble and the cute little turtle. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
