Tranquility for Sunday Stamps

It's time for a new challenge  over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a pretty color combo for everyone. The colors reminded me of a cottage along the beach and opening up french doors to let the ocean breeze move through the house....

A friend of mine has had a rough couple of months, having lost her father and most recently her grandfather. Unfortunately those are 2 losses my heart knows well and so I wanted to send her a card letting her know that I'm there for her no matter what.

The Sunday Stamps team had a bit of a debate about one of the colors in the swatch...some felt it was along the lines of So Saffron while others felt it was more of a Petal Pink color. I was in the Petal Pink camp so that's the color I used to make the light shining from the lighthouse. For the lighthouse itself I used Night of Navy and Slate Gray, and the Night of Navy was also used for the card base and the sentiment. I took the Slate Gray and stamped the water, stamping the stamp off once on scratch paper and then onto the panel to create more of a soft stormy look for the water. I used a sponge to stamp the gray around the edges of the image panel and across the image panel itself. I used Sahara Sand to stamp the beach and then used some of the new 6x6 Neutrals DSP for the strip across the bottom. The layout is a recent sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Make sure and head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! We'd love to see how you use these colors!
