The seahorse from "Eclectic Summer" is only attached at the top so it gently sways back in forth like it's swimming the current, what a great image for that design and wonderful way to mix these two sets, doesn't the bold image looks elegant with the realsitic starfish? She replaced so many of the details with new similar ones that work perfectly for a sea card, the punched flourishes now look like seaweed instead of pumpkin vines, she replaced the bats with bubble in the background, and finally the starfish for the punched stars LOL! too cool! (Inside of the card finsihes the quote, you can see it in her STV gallery) Awesome job, Tina, I'm so glad you are enjoying the book and adapting the designs to make them your own! :)
It is a joy to hear how much each of you are enjoying my stamp designs as well as how my cards have helped you create your own new ones, so I just had to share this great design today, as well as throw down a challenge to all my readers: please create a card inspired by anything I've made on this blog or posted in my STV gallery, but change it up somehow, colors, design, give it your own fresh spin, new and improved! I'll be receiving some new rubber for our next release shortly and I'll need to pick some new designing friends to help out with my newest set! I will only say it is nothing like the last couple sets I've released... go big and bold! :) Using any of my images in this challenge is a plus, it helps me see how you view and work with my designs, and how they fit with your own personal style.
Post your creation to your blog or STV gallery along with a picture of the card (or link to it) of mine it was inspired by. Then copy and paste the link of your post into the Mr. Linky below. (I reserve the right to remove appropriate links or those not relating the challenge) I look forward to seeing what you make! (I already have my eye on a few peeps for this new set but this will help me know if it's something you'd really want to do! Have fun!
