By the Sea
Some days I'm in the mood to spend a lot of time working on an image. Maybe coloring and shading with markers or paper piecing it. Days like today I'm short on time and just want to make a card. That's one of the things I like about these stamps. You can add a dash of color and be done really quickly.
Tonight I wanted to make a quick card, but I still want it to be special, something you can't pick up in the Hallmark store. With the right embellishments mission accomplished.
I always take a gander at the current challenges (having a bunch of them on my sidebar makes that easy for me) and usually get my ideas from that.
Here's the deets:
Stamps - The Cat's Pajamas "By the Sea"
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black
Paper - MFT Sno Cone card stock for the card base; Stampin' Up Pacific Point card stock for the rick rack; Me and My Big Ideas Ellen Starfish dp
Miscellaneous - MFT rick rack die and impressibilty; the Cat's Pajama yellow/white twine; EK Success circle punch; Tile's Play Mosaic Stickers; Taylor's Tiny Twinkles; K & Co Sea Glass charm
Here's the challenges:
The Cat's Pajamas - #115 Inspiration Photo of blue tiles
Creative Belli #94 - sketch and use something old (the tiles have been in my stash for over 3 years) - oops now that I'm linking up I see I didn't notice the challenge also has a patriotic element - well how about the starfish being inspired by the stars on our flag?
Stampin' B #64 - Summer Fun
