The art above uses the new Fishing Boat background stamp. I used brown ink to stamp the background, then colored the image with pastels. The sentiment is one from the By The Sea (set of 6).  I love this boat; it reminds me of summer vacations spent in Cape Cod (MA).

This second piece uses the Seagrass Lighthouse stamp paired with the By the Sea sentiment. Believe it or not, I made this stamp from a photo. I just loved the perspective, and thought it would make a great stamp (I think it did - what do you think?).

I hope you liked my artwork today -- and have fun at the hop. Onward to the fabulous blog of Lanette Erickson: for your next inspiration!

Enjoy, then get your 15% discount!
