The Great Outdoors

Happy Wednesday and Happy 4th of July!!  It's time for a new month of challenges from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge and I chose "The Great Outdoors" as our theme.  Here is the card I created:
This looks quick and easy, but man, does the sponging take me forever!  Love this image and I love using it as a silhouette like this for night time scenes.  It's so peaceful looking.  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.  I can't wait to see what you do with my challenge.

You captured serenity perfectly on this card, and I love the shadows you created in the sky! Fabulous silhouette image and a great sentiment to go along with this peaceful image! NJ!

Beautiful card! I love the night-time sky you inked - it's the perfect backdrop for the lovely harbour silhouette. The scene is so calming, I can almost hear the lapping of the waves .... Gorgeous!
Thank you for sharing your project with us at the Crafts Galore Encore “Anything Goes” July Challenge. Good Luck and hope to see you again next month!
