Stamp Review Crew: Sale-a-Bration 2019 Edition

The Stamp Review Crew has a bonus hop this month!   The format is a little different for this hop.  Instead of each member creating with the same stamp set as we usually do this time we are all using different Sale-a-bration sets.   As always though we are archiving the hop for future reference.  Please click on the banner below to see past hops and to check out the bios of the crew members.

Coloring with Stampin' Blends is so relaxing and I throughly enjoyed using them with the By the Bay Sale-a-bration stamp set.

The main image seemed a bit intimidating at first but was once I started it was very easy.  Just use a very light touch.  The results are remarkable in person!
The background layer is printed vellum from the Floral Romance
Speciality DSP and adds a very special elegance.
Lots of texture!
The fancy swirls from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut
Speciality paper look like ocean waves.
