Sister Stamps Release #16 - Dolphin Set

I'm loving these sea animal sets and I'm using the Dolphin Set for today's gift bag. Have you noticed the gifting theme to my projects? I experimented with vellum and Distress Stains to create an ocean for our dolphin friends.  I laid colors down on the vellum, spritzed with water and dried with a heat gun. I roughly cut scallops in the vellum to make it look like waves and then made a pocket for the gift tag to slide in and out.
Here's a close up of the dolphins
Here's a close up of the tag which I kept simple. The clothespin is what really makes it. I covered the clothespin with glitter tape. Then I stamped tickets on the extra vellum I had from the ocean scene and punched them out. I added a shell and a little tag to complete this embellishment.

Be sure to stop by the other inspirational blogs for this release. Stamps will be available on August 1.
