Grungy Beach

Hey - it's been an entire week since I uploaded... What have I been doing? Well except for a crop last weekend I could not tell you where my time has gone. Oh - wait I am re-reading all my Sookie Southern Vampire books... Yeah that's it!

But it is Friday and time for another Just for Fun Color Challenge. This week the colors are:
I like the Blue, Green and Orange color challenge and I added an extra challenge for myself - don't use flowers on this card. When I think of this color combination I naturally think flowers. So I looked at the JFF stamps that I have and used two that have not seen ink yet and I came up with:

Grungy Beach:

I really enjoyed making the background - water colored the Palm Tree, ink direct to paper for the sky and the sand, inked up the outer edge only of the Post Card Background stamp for around the edges and for the first time stamped with bubble wrap - see the orange circles. Who knew bubble wrap could be so much fun?

So sit back and click around and see what the offer JFF Designers have been up to:
