By the Sea

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with Paper Craft Crew Challenge and Create with Connie and Mary. The inspiration that came from these two incredible challenges were thought provoking and didn't turn out the way I thought.. It turned out better! Enjoy!

The sky and interior of the room follows the color challenge
from Create with Connie and Mary.
The flowers are thought to be sent for the recipient.
Entering the following challenges:

CCMC376  PCCCS 161-204-002

The sea theme is consistant throughout the card.
Lost Lagoon was used in the sea stars and ocean.
The sky is kind of dark with a white horizon line that melts into
Lost Lagoon is so pretty and true. 
I can actually smell the sea looking at this card.. You can imagine some clouds coming in but some of the sunshine is lighting up the horizon white. I used my Lost Lagoon ink pad and an aqua pen to create the ocean scene; and finished it off using a white gel pen for detail. As I didn't have Perfect Plum or Tip Top Taupe I tried to match them with what I had on hand.  

Well that should do it for me.. I hope you enjoyed your stay and want to thank you so much for spending time with TheGrandStampede.. Please leave any comments you would like good, great, or otherwise.. Thank you again and we will see you soon!

All the best,

Gorgeous! I love anything beach themed and this is outstanding. The little sand dollars and starfish tie it all together. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

Oh Shawna, how nice to see this window used for something different than Christmas or fall themed right now! This is a first with the sailboat and I love it. Thanks for being so creative and glad you joined us at the Paper Craft Crew this week! Crystal
