Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring
O-fish-ally Awesome stamp set , which is the April 2020 SOTM . If you have come here from Melissa Robinson’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

Products used are all Close to My Heart: O-fish-ally stamp set (April 2020 SOTM), Inks (Lagoon, Bluebird, Carolina, Toffee, New England Ivy, and Intense Black), Round Sponge, TriBlend Markers (Earth Brown, Dull Green Blend, Blue Turquoise Blend, and Orange Blend), and Thin 3-D Foam Dots.

I’m going to be honest, I was a bit scared of this stamp set. As cute as it, I just wasn’t sure if my creations would turn out the way I wanted them to. I’m sure you are going to see some amazing are on this blog hop. I went a simpler route to calm my fears and show you the result of how easy it really is.
The background is simply sponged with different ink colors. I used single and second generation stamping for the waves on the top. The sign and fish are stamped with Intense Black ink and colored with TriBlend Markers. It really is that easy! I did stamp the seaweed with New England Ivy and colored with the Dull Green Blend marker. I thought about adding Liquid Glass to the bubbles but I didn’t want to mess it up so I’m leaving it as is and I’m happy with it!
