Sea Scene

Yesterday some awesome mail arrived at my door and one of the sets from the Gina K. Designs package was the one called Ship to Shore. So after I had finished all of my cleaning for the day I relaxed and made up a quick scene card with that set.


My card is made of Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury Ivory heavy weight card stock. On a separate piece of the ivory card stock I stamped the waves in various colors of Momento blue inks leaving a space at the bottom which I wanted to be the sandy shore area. Also on that sandy shore I sponged on ink again and added the sentiment from the stamp set. On a separate piece of the ivory card stock I stamped the light house with Versafine black ink and did a fussy cut of that so it could be popped up over the sea waves.

But before I added these elements to the card I took sponges and sponged on my sky and again using Momento inks. I then added my sail boat and the birds with Versafine black ink. The waves were added right over the bottom of the sail boat and I added the light house over the waves.

I sure had fun making this card and it seems that sponging ink is always so relaxing and that was just what I needed to get me feeling more refreshed. I hope you liked the scene too/

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Nautical Theme
Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting and as always I love and appreciate all the wonderful comments. Have a great weekend.

God bless,
Verna
