The Ton July Mood Board Challenge

Hello, friends!  I'm back with a card I made for The Ton July Mood Board Challenge using this lovely mood board for inspiration:

I was immediately drawn to the top middle photo of the beach at dusk (or dawn, depending where you live!) and I used my "Wave" stamp set to recreate the scene!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Ton (Wave, Penned Sentiments)
Inks: MFT (Black Licorice), distress inks (Tumbles Glass, Peacock Feathers, Weathered Wood, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Shaded Lilac, Antique Linen)
Other: MFT (Wonky Stitched Rectangle die)

I used a variety of distress inks, both on the wave and in the sky, to recreate the colors in the picture.  (Supplies are listed above).  I also framed the card using a wonky stitch die to imitate the waves of the ocean.  I love the "Penned Sentiments" set and can't help but think of the awesomeness of the ocean when I read this particular sentiment.

I don't think I ever purchased a stamp set as quickly as I did this set.  I saw one card set during the release (by Laurel Beard) and went immediately to The Ton's store and bought it.  I am so glad I did!  I don't see me ever getting tired of this stamp set.  It amazes me every time I ink it up!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
