By the Bay - a Sale-a-bration Stamp Set

Today we're creating with By the Bay - a Sale-a-bration Stamp Set. Living in Maryland we have lots of Bay water in our area so this stamp set seems designed just for us! Since this is an SAB set this means you can get it free with a $50 purchase...pretty terrific, right?

There are 3 main designs in this set but I'm always drawn to sandpipers...so that's the one I focused on for this card.... By the Bay

The coloring is minimal--I used the Watercolor pencils and smoothed out the color with the Blender Pens...quick, easy, and very effective.
