Hello!

I made a second card for The Heart Desires Challenge #1. The theme, gorgeous colors and images really spoke to me… I finally broke out that fun stamp from Waltzing Mouse. Maybe a little too busy, but I love the result.

THD1

I had this leftover piece of water colored paper (with Distress inks) from my previous entry on the same challenge, that I stamped using a IO cover a card stamp – Waves. Then I went crazy spattering all over with my white Ecoline, to give the idea of a breaking wave. I added some of my loved Scrapiniec chipboard and several die cut shapes to compose my sea inspired card. I heat embossed the sentiments, flowers, seashell and starfish with Platinum embossing powder. To finish off my card, I embellished with some twine and a few white enamel dots.

    Utterly wonderful. I am so glad you joined us not once but two times at THD. I am traveling the Oregon Coast where the waves aren’t huge, but surfing is big, and your card is and will remain a pleasant reminder of my trip. It’s phenomenal. I am sorry I have been out of touch. A crappy few weeks of illness and then work bombarded me, and then off we went on vacation. Heading home tonight and already the anticipation of work… sigh. Glad I have your cards to take me away! šŸ™‚ Hugs, friend! And please come back and play more this month at THD’s next challenge. So glad you got your blog up and running!!!
