Peaceful lake

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
I created this beautiful water color card for my husband for Father's Day.  He just got a kayak this spring and has really been enjoying using it on the pond/lake we live on.  I didn't have a kayak image, but I thought the sailboat fit in with the water theme.  I have to say, I love how this turned out!  I used the ART Impressions water color technique to create the scene: coloring on the images with waterbased markers and using water and a paintbrush to turn it into a water colored image.  I used a little bit of color from a palette to create the reflections in the water.  Again, I just love it!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.
