The Mighty Ocean Shining the Light and MORE!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a CAS card to share with you today. At least it is CAS for me.  I am using ODBD newly released  The Mighty Sea set along with Eternity stamp set.  I am playing along with ODBD Shining the Light Challenge to create a scene!  I love this new ocean image.  While this image looks fabulous colored, it still looks just as good just inked to me.  I did rock and roll it a bit to give it some hues of blues and tans to mimi a more ocean, sand, sky look.  Love the results. 

I then stamped the quote directly to the image to finish the focal point.  I layered with Simple Stories Generations dp.  I  finished with some brown seam binding, button, and a few brown gems and metal photo corner. 

 I did give a subtle stamping using some vintage cream ink with a french script background to the petite gingham background.  It is subtle, but offers a little extra detail.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
