The Open Sea Triple Stamping - The Friday Mashup #

What a situation we have in southern Alberta!  The flood there is of historic proportions, filling the streets of Calgary and 20 other communities with water.  It is estimated that the flood extends 500 km and over 100,000 people have been displaced.
The Calgary Stampede is scheduled to begin there in 8 days, but the Saddle Dome is also flooded and has water up to row 6 in the arena, so I don't see how this can be accomplished.  Plus the Trans Canada highway has been washed away so no car traffic can go in and out this area.
These flood waters are moving south and east towards Sasketchewan and Manitoba potentially causing flooding there as well.

The challenge with the Friday Mashup here this week is triple stamping using 3 of the following colours:  Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point or Daffodil Delight.  I chose Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit and Pacific Point and used the stamp set "The Open Sea"


Check out this earlier post for directions and dimensions : http://craftymariasstampingworld.blogspot.ca/2012/09/thinking-of-you-triple-layer-stamping.html



Here's a list of the materials I used:
Stamps: The Open Sea, Petite Pairs
Inks: Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit
Papers: Pacific Point, Whisper White
Accessories: Pacific Point button, Blue/white Baker's twine
