AZ Sealife Aquarium - DGSC116


Continuing my work on our 2012 photobook, with our trip with Mike's parents to the Arizona Sealife Aquarium.  We had a lovely time.... and it was great to see our favorites -- the jellyfish and seahorses!

In creating these pages, I wanted to incorporate the Digi-Scrap Challenge (DGSC116) found on the Splitcoaststampers website.  It can be found here:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/digital-scrapbooking-tuesdays-f253/dgsc116-%96-spring-into-change-april-1-a-t586126.html
The challenge asked us to use a template and change it up, adding layers and masks.  I chose a sketch template from Scrapbooks Etc (SE292).  This is the sketch:

It was a little rough in creating these pages.... as I wanted the sun, clam, whale and starfish to 'look' like they were punched out of each colored paper. I achieved it by utilizing the drop shadow feature on the opposite sides of where I wanted to 'punch out' the stamp. I added a Basic Gray stamp underneath the Coastal Cabana stamp to add depth to the 'punched out' stamps too.  

I cropped each stamp, so that it would fit perfectly in the corner or sides of each colored block.

Thanks for looking!
