Welcome to my Blog! The Photo in my Header is a photo of a fox in a chair on my deck. He was asleep but woke up for the photo!

By The Sea

Good morning! My card today is for two challenges, the inspiration challenge over at SCS and Theresa's sketch challenge over at Stamp TV. I love this set "By the Sea" by Gina K. Designs.

I used Tim Holtz distressed ink to water color my image. Here is the tutorial on coloring with distressed inks by Yvonne. I pretty much followed her technique. The card stock, button and ribbon is from GKD. The sea foam was created using my white gel pen.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by.
