Inspiration challenge





Now that I am done with school for a while, I decided to jump back into the bloggers challenge group. I like having an 'assignment' each week. It helps to spur on my creative juices. This weeks challenge is an inspiration piece. We were to use the colors or feel of the picture to make our project. I used the Nautical expedition DSP from Stampin' Up! for my background and aged it with the distressed kit. The ship is stamped with Soft Suede and then I used the aqua painter and just a bit of marina mist ink to add dimension to the ship. It was a step outside of the box for me....just what I needed! Be sure to check out the other players this week or play along yourself!
