Seaside Cove 139H

Seaside Cove 139H

This large ocean stamp is one of the first stamps I received – it was a gift from an internet stamping buddy and I was blown away by the size of the thing (and her generosity!). At first, the size itself was intimidating, but then I saw the beautiful artwork Kevin made and I braved the inking. I made a few vacation postcards, and they didn’t come close to Kevin’s art, but I was hooked. Now I love this stamp for its versatility and often use just parts of it to create a scene.

Here’s a beautiful scene Kevin made using Seaside Cove:

  2. Roberta, this is amazing stuff! Kevin is so talented. It’s interesting to see the stamp and then to see what can be done with it in the hands of an artist.
