Seaside, Fresh Air


Greetings! It is once again time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge!  This time, our theme is "Can You Resist?"  Now I must admit, I had several false starts with this one.  I do not do a lot of techniques well that involve resist.  After viewing several You Tube Videos and having less success than I wanted, I totally started over when my eyes came across a Ranger Resist Ink pad.  Several collage stamp images by Red Lead Stamps were inked with the Resist Ink and stamped onto Specialty Paper. Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo Distress Ink were sponged over the paper until the beautiful collaged starfish, and shells appeared.  Sentiments from Paper Artsy were stamped in Timber Brown StazOn Ink.  A light house from PA was stamped onto Specialty Paper, trimmed and mounted to the card panel.  Cheese cloth was added to the left lower corner and shells, a starfish and baby sand dollar were adhered.  The prepared panel was matted with brown card stock, wrapped with burlap string and added to a card base.  You will surely be inspired by all the beautiful inspiration pieces of the Design Team.  As always, our generous sponsor is FlonzCraft and one lucky winner will win a $20 gift voucher.  I hope you will join us. Best wishes, Yvonne

Can't believe you had false starts this is gorgeous. The cheesecloth adds that extra special feel to the card and the lighthouse stamp is fabulous.

Living pretty much on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean allows me to enjoy today's art a bit more than some, Yvonne! I just love it!
