Breakers of the Sea

Hi everyone! I didn't get the chance to post this yesterday for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast since hubby and I went to "the city" (Indianapolis) for his work's banquet dinner, but just wanted to share a birthday card I made for my step-dad. The challenge was to choose a photo from "Better Photo".....wowza, soooo many fabulous photos, however, I really want to take some photography classes after seeing some of those shots. I had better start saving now for a "real" camera!!! :) As soon as I saw this amazing sunset scene, I knew I had to use "The Mighty Sea" again......this is such a perfect set for masculine cards! I have also used the Our Daily Bread designs "Shining The Light Challenge"....a H-E-A-R-T recipe challenge: E=embossing folder, R=raised panel, and T= "The Mighty Sea" or twine.

Since I don't have Copics markers yet (another thing I need to save for!), I like to color with sponge daubers and ink pads. If you'd like to see how I use masking and sponging, check out this tutorial I wrote for the Our Daily Bread designs blog HERE.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'The Mighty Sea';
Cardstock: SU Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Ruby Red, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive;
Accessories: SU Square Lattice Embossing Folder, SU Corduroy button, Baker's Twine, paper piercer and template, sponge daubers, foam tape, 3m Post-it Craft paper;
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Have a wonderful, blessed weekend!!
