Manatee Card

Hello! Last month Newton's Nook released a super cute Manatee stamp set called Manatee-rific and I just had to add it to my stash. Today I made this Manatee Card using the new stamp set along with the waves stencil. Salty Ocean distress ink was used for the waves and the Mantee and accents were colored with Copic markers. The coordinating dies were used to cut out the images and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. To add some green to the scene I used a foliage stamp from a Lawn Fawn stamp set. The outside frame is from the Newton's Nook Frames & Flags die set and the center oval was cut using a cross-stitched oval die by My Favorite Things. That's it! I'm pretty slow when it comes to crafting, so this Manatee Card took me most of the afternoon to make.
