September 2012 Release Challenge Winner

I was very lucky and surprised to find out that I was the winner of Gina's Wood you try something new Challenge. This challenge was creating a wood look using a technique Gina showed us on her website. You can just imagine how thrilled I was to find out I had won. I used different colors and a smaller panel for my technique, and when I was finished, it reminded me of a beach house, so I went with it.

I did not use the traditional wood colors, but went with blues. I used 3 colors of Distress Ink and I made my planks 1/4" apart. Instead of molding, I created a border using Life's a Beach (colored with Copics). I made the window from extra planks and sponged the sunset with Memento inks. Then stamped the ship from Enjoy the Sunshine. I sponged the "wall" with Memento ink. I cut a shell using my Cricut and stamped the sentiment from Under the Sea. The decorations on the wall are dolphin brads and the "picture" I made using a silver frame, UTEE and charms. The UTEE is a lot more blue in real life than it appears in the picture. Thank you for looking.
