AUGUST 2017 DESIGNER'S CHOICE CHALLENGE AT THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT

Hello House Friends!!!! 

It's my turn to host a Designer's Choice Challenge at The House That Stamps Built and I have been re-watching a bunch of my favorite movies lately and thought it might be fun to create a card using one of those movies as the subject and challenge you to do the same.  

My favorite movies are girly flicks....I can't help it, I'm a romantic at heart.  Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Sleepless in Seattle, Sweet Home Alabama....oh, I had so many to chose from.  

Sweet Home Alabama won out....I attempted to capture the lightening striking the sand on the beach and creating beautiful glass from the movie.  



I did say "attempted"  I wasn't creative or artistic enough to draw "lightning" for my card, so I used a tree limb stencil I had and sponged white pigment ink through it. This also helped me "light up" the sky.  I sponged the "sand" with a darker grey ink but kept the "lightning" penetrating the "sand".  I stamped RI#9503-L "Wine Glass" in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white ep.  I used Copic Markers to color the wine.  The sentiment is from the same set  RI#9510-E "Wine Time".

I hope you'll play along...it might be a little harder than some other challenges, but that's what a challenge is.  Just enjoy the process.  

For details on how to enter and what you might win, please link on over to THE HOUSE and get the details.  

For even more incredible creations and to see what movies rock the Rock Stars, take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.
