Pretty Palette #64

We changed things up a bit over at the Pretty Palette challenge.  Our challenges have changed to every other week and we changed our posting date to Thursdays.  You will have two weeks to play.  On the opposite Thursdays, you can participate in the Pretty Pattens challenge which will also run for two weeks.

 This is what I came up with for this week's color challenge.  I used the Seas the Day digital stamp set and colored it in GIMP.  I shaded some bashful blue ink around the image while it was still in the die.  A little darker on the bottom to mimic the water and lighter on top for the sky.  I also distressed it a bit with some tea dye distress ink.  The sentiment is from the So Sentimental acrylic stamp set.  The paper was the perfect fit for these colors.  It's from My Mind's Eye called Blink of an Eye.  I used the flag die from WPlus9 and an SU scallop border punch for the side.

This is the sketch I used from Card Positioning Systems.

You can see more from the design team on these blogs.
