The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge

It’s the second Wednesday of August which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built!  Today, Cherri is hosting our challenge and she has chosen “Sun, Sand & Surf.”  Great theme for summer Cherri!

As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner.  Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!

For my “Sun, Sand & Surf” card I began by stamping a text background using “Postcard 5015-P” to create the feeling of travel.  I then stamped two panels of the verticals stamp called, “Beach Positive 6007-M” with Versamark ink then white heat embossed and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  The “Large Palm Trees 2408-N”  was stamped with Sepia Archival Ink and also distressed.  Finally, the sentiment is made from small Basic Grey stickers.  Sure looks like a great place to be!

Where will your Sun, Sand and Surf take you this week?  Please show us with your card at The House that Stamps Built.  Happy Wednesday!
