Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop June- #2

It's time for the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! We're changing it up this year- there will be two hops each month as usual and there will be opportunities to win $ to purchase Serendipity Stamps. The design team will be showing you the latest products and offering a chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

You should have arrived here from Marybeth Lopez blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. I have a kinda' clean and simple card for you today.



So, I'm still in the beach mode, that time of year.... right!! So I played with the Lighthouse die. The background was water colored with blues and browns for the sands using distress oxide inks. After the ink was sponged onto the watercolor card stock- I sprayed with water. This was done several times to get the color variation I wanted. When the sky was 99% dry I added some clouds using the same distress oxide ink but, without spraying the water. I added some white splatters to the sand. The Lighthouse die was cut several times for layers and to get the red accents. 



I thought the sentiment- My Life- is one of my favs- this girl is dreaming about sitting on a beach with no cares in the world :-)  

 Looking for some awesome inspiration?   
I'm the last stop on the hop today!!

AND... there are always prizes. One random comment along the hop will receive a $20 gift code to the Serendipity Stamps store. You have from today until Sunday to leave your comments. Mary will announce the winner on the Serendipity Stamps blog on Monday!!

Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!

This is fabulous! I live in a lighthouse town, so I'm always drawn to cards relating. This is no exception and with your beautiful sky this is a perfect scene.
