We're Back! For Your Inspiration

Our challenge, For Your Inspiration, is back off hiatus!  While the break was good, I am ready to be inspired again by the gorgeous photos Stef finds. 













As par for me, I try to "remake" the photo.  I am not completely sold on this card -- The lighthouse is too solo.  So.......

I made a 2nd card.  With the help of Michelle Zindorf [gotta love her tutorials!], I made this card.  I like this card much better. A mixture of direct to paper and sponging, a little masking, this card is complete.  I used the fun images from GKD By the Sea

Does the photo inspire you?  I sure hope you pop on over to FYI and play along!  We would love to see your creation!

Thanks for stopping by~

I like them both too, Vicki. Often times, lighthouses do stand along...I saw them in Nova Scotia and there are some here on the coast of Maine that do...Happy New Year! I LOVED your card....thank you so much!!!!

Both cards are great Vicki! I love all the bright cheery feel of the first one and the warm colors of the second.

Yes, I like the second card the best, also. The first one kind of looked like the lighthouse was in the middle of a lake??? But the second one, is spot on...with that expanse of ocean to the back....gorgeous! See, you just have to go with your own instincts, works every time! Love your work. I am going broke buying the images you use, however. bawhahahaha Oh well, a fan is a fan. LOL Keep it up, and brighten my day, every day. Thanks for sharing your talent.
