It's Magical Monday Challenge Time at TMIA/PCC

Marie Bridgeman brings us this weeks challenge at TMIA/PCC. She would like to see us use any acquired Paper Cupcake's Image and use no patterned paper on your project. You can emboss, stamp, score etc. to make a pattern, but no store bought pattern paper.  The design team have created some awesome inspiration for you so hop on over TMIA/PCC to see their works of wonder.
We sure hope you can play along with us this week!!!

I created this small note card to send to a friend of mine across the oceans and thought the lighthouse image by Nina would be perfect. Image was colored with Copics, sage ultrafine Flower Soft was added to the top of the hill and the mesas. I think I've finally gotten the water technique down to where I'm pleased with the way it turns out........finally.....LOL  What do you think?  The sky was sponged with Memento Sky Blue ink. The sentiment was computer generated and then cut with a Spellbinder's die and sponged with Sky Blue. Pretty easy project for me this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you  have the time to leave me a comment so I can come visit to see what's new with you.  I'm really hoping you can play along with us this week. It would mean so much to me to see some of my followers participating in this challenge. I love ya all as you make my days complete and give me a reason to keep creating.
