I made a bookmark featuring one of the adorably chubby manatees and the ocean bottom stamps from the MANATEE PALS stamp set. The images were stamped on to cotton watercolour paper and then I painted the scene with a combination of Daniel Smith and Koi watercolour paints. I absolutely LOVE this sweet set! I also added a handmade tassel (learned how to make these from my lovely friend Krafty Girl Alexis). 

Here's a look at the full stamp set:
