"The Voice of The Sea"

Hi everyone! Today I would like to share a quick and easy card I made for a co-worker. This "The Mighty Sea" set by Our Daily Bread designs is now my absolute favorite for masculine cards. I made a mask out of 3M post-it paper, and have re-used the mask many times for coloring the sky with ink pads and sponge daubers...soooo fast and easy!! The shore was also sponged, but the rest of the scene was colored with Stampin Up markers.

I have used the following challenges for this card today:
