Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24


This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I LOVE the sketch and I decided to look for a stamp set that I haven't used in a long time. I got this MSE set a long while ago because I loved it, but I just couldn't seem to make the images work to my liking. So, it's been on the shelf since. I think it's because the images are made up of words rather than a solid image. I chose the lighthouse from the set and used the starfish for the background for a nautical theme. I thought the jumbo brads worked well for this, as did the hemp. I'm still having a difficult time with this set, but maybe if I just work with it more, I'll start having an easier time. Be sure and check out what Beate, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo and Sharon have created! I'm sure they will be more than inspiring! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Friday!SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- By the Sea Sentiments (MSE!); Paper- Brocade Blue, Whisper White (SU), patterned paper (DCWV); Ink- Whisper White Craft ink, Night of Navy (SU); Accessories- hemp, jumbo eyelets (SU), paper piercer, clear embossing powder.

Great card! I love your use of the water paper - I never know how I can use those types of paper when you get them in a pack and don't really want them. By the way, it's Bev, not Shannon....ck out your comment for me! LOL ;)

Love it!

Hmm.. I see what you mean..
None of my business but what if you inked part of the stamp to a different color to deal with the lack of dept...

just thinking out load..
Love the rest of it..

i like everything about this, including Stay the Course, except the image! i can see why you found it challenging to work with. but the water-patterned dp, the brads, the stamped starfish, and particularly the hemp pull it off! good to challenge yourself!!
