Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jillian challenged us to Make It New. . .to dust off some old stamps and make them new again. The set By the Seashore from My Favorite Things was one of the FIRST sets Christie sent me when I joined the Paper Pretties Design Team. I LOVED this set and I used it quite a bit when I first got it, but unfortunately, it hasn't seen ink since. So, I decided to dust it off and make a card for Jessie! I did a lot of sponging making clouds and the glow of the sun. I hope she likes it! Stop by the other Prettie Girl blogs to see what they've dusted off! :) Last week Jessie challenged us to make a card using bright colors including orange and today Joni challenged us to make something "by hand". . .something on the card has to be either hand drawn, doodled, or written--no stamps! I hope you'll play along on one of the challenges! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- By the Seashore (My Favorite Things); Paper- The Summer Stack (DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko), Chocolate Chip, Marigold Morning, Soft Sky (SU); Accessories- Aquapainter, Copic markers, sponge

I love this set. It was one of my favorite MFT sets. You did a marvelous job with the design of this card. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I'll have to go dig that one out and play with it again. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan
