Crackerbox Palace Friday

It's Crackerbox Palace Friday today and I am sharing a card I made recently with some beautiful stamps from Crackerbox Palace. You may have noticed I am a day later than I normally blog for Crackerbox Palace. We have changed the schedule and you can expect to find me blogging here every Friday with a card or two from CBP.
I fell in love with this gorgeous seagull and water image the first time I saw Vicky coloring it. There is no way I can color as beautifully as she can, so I am showing you a different way to use this image. I embossed the scene with black embossing powder, stamped the sentiment and then sponged with various inks. I masked the moon and left the seagull and sentiment uncolored to highlight them. I like how it turned out and hope you do too. Please visit the website to see these and many other awesome Crackerbox Palace stamps.
I am entering this card in the No Digis challenge at Charisma Cardz and Shelly’s Images challenge to “Show us what you got.”

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

I love this card Karen. It is so hard to make sympathy cards and this one is wonderful. Thanks so much for joining our challenge at Shelly's Images Blog.

This card is fabulous Karen. I agree with Shelly, so tough to make a sympathy card, but you did a lovely job!
