I won't give away all of the details, to find out more visit Mixed Media Mojo, but here are some closeups for you.  I used Christine Adolph shell stamps by Stampington & Co., from 2005.  The boat stamp is by Coronado Island Stamping circa 2004.

I definitely added the fluff back into my work, no?  LOL!

Fabulous canvas the use of blue in so many of its rich range of shades and the different textures have created something very special here. You and your skill are the magic that makes it all work.

OMG! Yeppers, this is fantabulous with a slice of cake! Wowzers on the details. This canvas looks three dimensional and I want to put on a snorkel and wander through the exotic sights. Stupendously awesome sauce blues and the greens/teals lend such depth to the background. Hugz to you muffin! ~Niki
