Ocean's Lamp

Life is good...today was another day that I had the opportunity to spend time in the studio and to play the challenges on SCS. Today was the Featured Stamper's Challenge and Dawn L. was the special stamper this week. I have followed Dawn's work since I became a stamper- she is quite the talented artist. I chose her Never Give Up card to case.

The image was colored a while ago and was never used. It was in that 'to be completed' basket. Don't you have one of those? Anyway it was colored with SU! markers, inks and an aqua painter. Then sponging for the sky and sea. Today a little more Baja Breeze sponging was added so that the image would blend with the papers.

Two retired DSP papers were used- Walk in the Park (technically not retired until 7/1) and Prestwick. The sentiment is from the new SU! stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes, which I used yesterday too. Going Gray was used as the neutral.

We have quite a few men in our family with birthdays between now and August so I am busily making cards for the guys.

Don't forget about the Design Team call over at The Digi Shack. {See my sidebar}

Have a great week, friends!
