For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all! 

Supplies:

Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, water color, small strips of teal
Ink: VersaFine onyx
Accessories: MFT Stars & Wishes/Count the Stars dies, Memory Box silhouette skyline die, Recollections constellations dies, Momenta skyline dies, black detail embossing powder

To make my card, I put the lady image into my Misti, stamped her w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then overstamped w/ Versafine. I stamped the greeting under her then used a mask large enough to cover the greeting & also placed a mask on the lady. Then I stamped the flourish w/ the greens ink pad & used a ruler to draw the lines around the greeting. After die cutting the panel, I edged it w/ a green marker & used a die that only does 1 stitched line above & below the greeting . A little stickles was added on the flourish.

Here are the Copics I used.
