Stamping INKspirations June Blog Hop - Splish Splash

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog today. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. It is time for this month's Stamping Inkspirations blog hop and our theme for this month is Splish Splash.

Oh boy - this theme really had me scratching my head and I almost pulled out. I don't have any water related stamp sets - no boats, no fish, no rainy stamps. And then, just as I was thinking of giving up, I caught sight of a piece of scrap paper I had used to stamp off some of the reverse little leaf stamps from the Back to Back Blooms set. 

It occurred to me that stamped in the right colours they could look like little waves. So I stamped them in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

Stamped like that they reminded me of a cool swimming pool or maybe turquoise waves lapping on a golden beach. Adding the cocktails made me think of sitting by a pool (or on a beach) sipping cocktails in the sun!

So what do you think? Did I get away with my interpretation of the theme? I hope so. Please do leave a comment if you have time.

But meanwhile, make sure you keep hopping around all the other blogs - some amazing projects for you to see and be inspired by. Next up is Susan Simpson who has a fabulous project for you!
