Go to your Happy Place

I usually don't participate this many times in a challenge, but I received some new Paper Smooches stamps for my birthday, so I had to play just one more time in the SPARKS inspiration challenge.

I used a new kit called the Travel Kit with a new set called Get Outta Town.  The background was sponged with the inspiration colors as my stepping stone.  

I hadn't done it in a while, but I embossed and watercolored my images with Tombows.

Stamps:  Get Outta Town
Ink:  Brilliance Black, SU Pool Party, Island Indigo, Cameo Coral, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake 
Paper:  CDS Worn Parchment, watercolor paper, CDS Cottonball White
Accessories:  black embossing powder, foam tape, sponges, PS Travel Kit, ticket punch, aqua painter & Tombows

Thanks for stopping in!  I'll have a new Taylored Expressions Sketch to show you tomorrow, so be sure to come back :D

  7. I want to go there, what a cute use of that saying and of the SPARKS challenge.

  8. Cassie - I love your card! I'm part of the monthly club at Paper Smooches, and when Kim sent us the preview pictures of this set, those little mountains were the first things to catch my attention. But for some reason, I have yet to figure out a way to use them (I'm not sure why). Your card is actually the first I've seen with that stamp on it. Great job!

  9. OHHHH! I love the side stamped sentiment--love your ribbon and that fun metal embellishment! YOU ROCKED this challenge:) THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge;)
