Stamp: The Sea comes with quotes and scriptures

My first card uses the sure to become an all time favourite The Sea. I was reminded of this technique recently, using contact paper, some chalk (do you still have your set of fifty?) Lol...I added texture to my card base with CB folder and added some jute with an imaginary nautical knot. Next, I added some corrugated paper to give it some rugged goodness. Love the finished card.
stamp:  sheltering Cherry Blossom has 7 sentiments/scripture
My second card features Sheltering Cherry Blossom. I love this branch with sweet blooms! I turned the branch to make it into a tree and applied ink to give it some shadowing around the image to create dimension. Now head on over to Kim Schofield and see what eye candy she has for you. Below is the bloglist if you lose your way...
