Happy Friday everyone! We had a great week here in MN with nicer (cooler) temperatures and lots of rain for the garden - but now we have too many misquitos! I also hosted my first stamp class at my house since we moved here and all 6 ladies that came had a blast! I've never had two classes going on at once - so I'm very excited!
But, enough about me! We have a new challenge over at TGIF Challenges - we are picking our favorites from JUNE and casing them. It could be a design team member or a challengers card from TGIFC #62-65. Pick one you like and share both the original and your take on it! Simple enough!
The last two times we have done this challenge, I chose two challengers cards. This week I was inspired by this card made by a fellow DT member - Jennifer Frost.
I love the watercolored background and the beachy feel.
I didn't want to use the same set for the focal point, so I decided on another sea themed stamp set.
The lighthouse is from the set From Land to Sea and it's paired with the sentiment from Rose Wonder.
I wanted to add some color to my card so I added some Calypso Coral Thick Twine, By the Shore DSP stack & I colored the lighthouse and oval with my Aqua Painter.
I also stamped the background a few times with the sentiment. I love the graphic look of repeated words.
So there you have it! I hope you liked the card (and the original)! I can't wait to see what you come up with for this week's challenge!
