Welcome to What I love: Waterfront

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!  Today is the day I share on the theme of what I love. I live near a beautiful lake and I love being near or on the water every day, so it's no surprise that the Waterfront set from Stampin' Up! made it to my craft desk. I am loving it!

Creating water or mountain scenes with this set will be a breeze. I made two cards to get me started on a few cards for men's birthdays that I'll be needing next month.  I can't believe June is almost here! I have a birthday of my own coming up. 

 I began by lightly sponging a background for each of the cards using Distress Oxide Inks in Antique Linen and Broken China, and sprinkling on a few fine dots of water. Stamping the scene for the first card involved lots of layers to make the row of mountains and trees and a bit of additional sponging with greens
 to fill in the blank spots.

For the second card, I kept the stamping much simpler and placed the scene inside an oval frame with a die cut window. 

This set is still on my craft table so I think you'll be seeing it again soon with the beach-y version! 
I hope good things and good times are on their way to you today. Thanks for visiting!
