Helloooo House friends!!!!  

It's inspiration challenge time at The House That Stamps Built, let's get playing....

My card uses RI#4111-F "Starfish (sm)", 2410-I "Conch Shell", 2418-E "Scallop Shell".  The sentiment is RI#2512-E "Just a Note" and I also used RI#2711-I "Cattails" for a bg element.  After sponging and masking with Distress Inks, I used a crackle stencil to add the depth of texture to the sky and the sand.  My white gel pen was used to add the "waves" on the beach and some highlights to the shells.  

Here's the inspiration.  Head on over to THE HOUSE for all the details on how to enter and what you could win.  

For even more incredible creations for the Inspiration Challenge take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.

Hey there, Junkies!!! 

Just a quick post with a new card I made using one of the new stamps from the Technique Junkies July 2017 release.  

The face on this lady just explodes with happiness and I just had to give her some love.  The stamp is called "Joy and Laughter" and I colored it with my Chameleon Colortone pencils.  After coloring the image, I drew a border around the frame with the purple color of my Nuvo Northern Lights Glitter Markers.  The background was created with a stencil from my stash and sponging white pigment ink through it.  I paired the image with one of the sentiments from "Sentimental Sayings" that I heat embossed with white ep.  

I hope I've offered you some inspiration.
