True Directon

Time Out Challenge #114 is up and running. 
This time around, it's a Home Sweet Home Challenge - A photo inspiration challenge with a homey twist! Here is the photo:

For my card, I created a watercolor background with Distress Oxide Inks in 4 shades of blue, die cut it with the Wave and Sea Fancy Die from Hero Arts, and mounted it on Neenah Solar White 110# card stock.  I die cut a Kraft frame and stamped it with a rope image from Clear Arts Stamps Seaside set in Kraft ink to mimic the weave in the seats and coffee table in the photo. The sentiment is Typographia Motivate - True Direction from STAMPlorations stamped in VersaFine Majestic Blue. I LOVE the font on the Typographia stamps!

STAMPlorations is the Challenge Sponsor.

Challenge winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. Plus there will be a random winner  drawn from all entries to receive a goodie bag of stamps and dies from the STAMPlorations store.
See details on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

Those weaves and the colours in your background are super! (Makes me want to go to the water and jump in right know...) Hugs, Gerrina

I love that background, what a creative idea and made to perfection.Plus matches the sentiment so well. Good idea to use the frame to break up the background and make the sentiment shine!

What a fabulous showcase of that wonderful sentiment, Stephanie ... all those yummy blues and little waves are a perfect background for it! Such an inviting scene! Hugs, Anita :)
