Classic Serendipity


Hi everyone! It's challenge time again at Serendipity Stamps. What could be more fun than taking one of Serendipity's classic stamps and creating something new. I chose this beautiful Palm Tree stamp and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I wanted a lot of color depth so I decided to color the image with Distress Ink and I love how it turned out. Can't you just smell the ocean? I don't know about you, but it really makes me want to take a vacation! Unfortunately (but a blessing) my husband just started a new job, so just a staycation for us this year!

I added one of Serendipity's sentiments..."Thinking of You", it's one of my personal favorites. You'll find the rest of the card details below.

Thanks for visiting. Check out my team mates sites and be sure and visit Guest Designer Jenny Gropp's creation too.
