Papertrey Ink Day 1 -- Salt Air: Flora, Fauna, and Sentiments

Welcome to Papertrey Ink's June Release countdown! Today, I'm excited to help introduce Betsy Veldman's Salt Air product collection: Salt Air: Flora; Salt Air: Fauna, and Salt Air: Sentiments.

These new products will be available at 10 pm June 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

My mind has been spinning with all sorts of fun ways to use these sets! For today, I couldn't resist creating a little tide pool to go with the sentiment "High tide or low tide, I'll be by your side." 

I started by ink blending a background using Distress Inks and heat embossing the sentiment in white, then I built my shaker window using the Geode Layers die set.

Then came the real fun -- stamping all the colorful Salt Air: Flora and Salt Air: Fauna images. I think I used half of Papertrey's ink colors on just this one card!

More of those colorful die-cuts.

Here's a closer look at the sentiment from Salt Air: Sentiments. To go with it, I added a pair of fish swimming side by side.

Before I closed up the shaker I, added some Fine Linen ink blending to the outer perimeter of the shaker window and also tossed in a bunch of white, clear and aqua sequins.

I can't wait to play around more with this collection. Both Salt Air: Flora and Salt Air: Fauna are huge sets, too -- lots and lots of variety in for creating just that perfect underwater scene.

This card is just beautiful. It was worth pulling out all of those ink pads to get such a stunning mix of colors. I think Poseidon would be quite please with how you portrayed his kingdom.
