Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #242, where our word prompt for the next two weeks is Maritime. I've only been as far east as Montreal in Canada; traveling to and thru our Maritime provinces is on my wish list! Perhaps, at some point, a LONG road trip will happen.
Maritime images cover such a range of choices: boats, water/waves, beaches, fish, coast lines, rows of pretty houses with colour roofs...and so on. Choices galore! While I have a few 'beach' themed stamps/dies in my collection, I recently found a great sale on some patterned papers, two of which were from Carta Bella's By the Sea collection. Then, I went on a search for ideas on ways to use said paper -and landed on Kristie Marcotte's blog here. My stars: she is some talented, especially in creating multiple cards (in this case, 26!) from one 6x6 pad! I *ahem* borrowed one of her designs to case - or rather, pretty much copy. I love her designs and I managed, using sections of one of my 12 x 12 papers and the same Whimsy slimline die as she did, to create something I really like. Hope you do, too!
Please check out my teammates' Maritimes marvels, then play along with us!
Thank you for dropping by!
