FM122 Sweet Summer Seashore

Tara's got us using a color combination with a tag for the Friday Mashup.  My post is a little early, as there is blog hopping tomorrow.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with the colors "Soft Sky, Crisp Cantaloupe, Bermuda Bay, Primrose Petals".
  2. Create a "Tag (as an embellishment on your card, or as the project itself)".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Tag Project with the Color Combination".
As I was doing double-duty on my projects, I wanted to make a summer project for one half of the VSN challenge submission last week, Summer and Winter Tags.  I have to admit the colors were a challenge for where I wanted to go, but the blues were talking me into a water scene.  I would never have thought to use Crisp Cantaloupe for the sand, and I just love how it came out!

Yes Tara, my first use of this stamp set, and it is all your fault!  :)  I used Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #96.

Stamps: Wetlands, Happy Day; Paper: Soft Sky, Primrose Petals, Whisper White, In Color Patterns DSP; Ink: Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Primrose Petals, Black Stazon; Accessories: Linen thread, Cupcake builder punch, Brayer, Sponge, White gel pen, Chevron EF, Square Lattice EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

Heidi, I'm so excited to see this stamp set! :) The scene you've create is perfect... I never would have thought that Crisp Cantaloupe would work so well for sand!

Hi Heidi,

I think your card is all about that so simple and serene image - its wonderful and unique. What a great take on the challenge for Mash up. So glad I could join in this week.

Blessings,
