The Stamp Review Crew - High Tide

https://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2018/03/high-tide.html

Welcome to the latest Stamp Review Crew blog hop! The "Crew" consists of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who love to spark creativity and inspiration in others. Today we are featuring the High Tide stamp set which, I am ashamed to admit, I have only used once just for the birds. Did you arrive here from Nikki's AWESOME blog? If you follow the links, you will see all ten blogs on this tour.

I have two projects to share today. Up first is a reverse-masked card using seven of the stamps in High Tide! Can you spot them all?  One of them (the sun rays) is kind of subtle.

A piece of copy paper was cut with the largest circle die to use as a mask. I placed a sticky note to mask off the sky while I stamped the water, then turned it around and covered the water while I sponged and stamped the sky. It really is such a simple technique, but it looks so cool!

For the next project, I used the circle die again to cut an opening in the Wood Textures DSP. I stamped the water and sandy cliff, then cut some cloud shapes from a sticky note and sponged the cumulus clouds.

The lighthouse was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut, then popped up on dimensionals.
