It's A Summer Challenge


For the Impression-Obsession Design Team. As you can see, my card is for those who like the ocean, or the lake, or anywhere there's water! The stamp is Night Pier by Leigh Hannan. I love the water and the sand.

I used Brilliance Galaxy Gold and Twinkling H2O watercolors. The new Moonlight Smooch by ClearSnap was used to highlight some waves. Bet you anything this is Mica Magic Pearl in a different bottle. I used the new Fiskars Effervescence Border Punch for the trim. If you would like to see more detail and how to do the new Fiskars Punch corners, check out the I/O blog, HERE, where I have a video and explain where to mark your punches for the corners.

Don't forget to check out the Design Team member's blogs too for some wonderful cards and don't forget Tina Werner still has Blog Candy to give away!

Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share.
