Finally

Hello world, it's me.

I have tried my darnedest to create like promised. Last week I finished one but have refrained from posting because, if I'm honest, I'm just not happy with the result.

I started with the intention of sending a card to a nephew who enlisted in the Navy and is going through boot camp. This means I needed to stay as simple as possible. I think I stayed to simple and need a finishing touch but have not found it yet, so into the mail it will go.

I started with a stamp from Stampassions called Lighthouse by the Bay. Colored with Prismacolor pencils, rounded the corners and mounted onto a base card stamped with Fun Stampers Journey stamp, Geometric Genius.

It's clean and simple. I welcome thoughts of whether this is too simple and if so, how should it be finished. Don't worry about hurting feelings because you won't. If I don't ask, I don't learn.


I look forward to reading those thoughts!
