What a crazy website Angie gave us today! I chose this postcard as my inspiration, because we just spent last Sunday night in Orleans, so I had a picture from the beach to use. I printed out this picture of my husband on Skaket Beach and cut the 70 out of it using my ScanNCut. I cut a shadow 70 and outlined the photo 70 in red marker to match the postcard. Then I sponged the ocean scene and drew in some little sailboats. Finished off by using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment. I really like how this card came out! The only thing is now that I see it on the screen, I notice that I stuck the 70 on crooked--the horizon is not straight.
This card also goes to Michelle's VSN challenge for The Great Outdoors. Trust me, these outdoors were really great!
So, while I was browsing the inspiration site I decided to search for my town. You can totally get Assonet souvenirs, but for some reason they all have outhouses on them? Weird. But of course I've seen that outhouse before--it's at the Historical Society.
Oh how cool!! I love what you did with that picture - it really does resemble the postcard you patterned it after (but I like yours even better!!).
Thanks so much for linking up to Cropstop - I hope you'll brighten the gallery with more of your work soon!
