By The Bay.....

Hi there everyone: I have a card created with a NBUS stamp set from SU called "By the Bay", I really love the beautiful scene and sketchy look of these images.
This set was a freebie from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration promotion and my last stamp purchase this year, I believe it was like back on the first week of January.
Anywho, here's my card, hope you like it.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with my SU markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I don't know about you but, I would love to be in that house, looking out into the distance, breathing the sea air and listening to the waves down below.
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Lenten Rose" and the little shell from the "By the Bay" set.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.

CASE the Designer, this time is my dear friend
Brian King.
I turned the design on the horizontal.

Optional theme/Watercolor.
I went with this option.

  5. What perfect sentiments for a beautiful and peaceful scene. Good for you to finally ink up this set. I love the red roof and trim you chose for the house. Wouldn't that be cozy in the wintertime? Love this, Maria!
