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.
