Take Ten Design Challenge

The Sring issue of Take Ten magazine Issued a challenge to all readers to submit cards using their design sketch on page 25 of that issue. I’ve participated in their challenges before and have had cards published, so I thought I would try again. Their deadline is May 1 – here are my submissions.
Martini: stamps from Autumn Leaves (Swirls) and Vap! Scrap (martini), background paper from Provo Craft
 
Lighthouse: stamps from SU (crosshatch) , PSX (lighthouse) and ERA Graphics (Dream); colorwash sprays from Stamp Zia
 
Car: unknown stamp, cuttlebug embossing folder

Tri fold card

Here is my take on the TriFold card technique from last weeks SCS challenge. I started with textured cardstock from WalMart (A stack of 48 sheets of 12 x 12 paper – a great buy at just under $10 – must get more of these) and used my Marvy punches to make the window and frame. The little lighthouse stamp is from PSX. I had stamped this image several times on some background paper made using Posh reinkers on glossy spritzed with water. The images sat in a box for over a year when I realized they were just the right size for this card. The flowers are from a sizzix die cut, the ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
