Manatee-rific – I LOVE MANATEES!

Okay let’s start with a fact – I love manatees! They are like teddy bears in the ocean. They have been mistaken for mermaids, they are peaceful and eat 10% of their body weight per day. What’s not to love?!

 

 

For this card I paired the Lawn Fawn Manatee-rific stamp set and the Bayou backdrop die. The ocean background was created by blending distress oxide inks and splattering water to create that fun texture.

To watch how this all came together and to see a clip of a Manatee that I swam with click on the thumbnail below. Supplies are listed below. Affiliate links are used where possible at no cost to you.

  1. Oh how fabulous! I run a challenge (Snippets Playground) here in the UK and already have the Manatee set to offer as a prize. Then I spotted the Bayou Backdrop and thought, wait – I could use that upside down and add a Bayour Backdrop set to the prize! And only THEN did I find your fabulous video and now your blog. I will follow how you did it as it’s exactly what I had in mind – and will give you credit for your video. I always make a sample card and hen offer the exact same items (unused though) as a prize. What a coincidence! Bit stunned here 🙂
