Smooth Sailing with Freshly Made Sketches

Hello and Welcome to another new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches!

Our talented Jacquie has a challenging sketch for you this week, but one that, once over my panic, I turned out loving!

I love the offset rectangle and the 3 fun strips. The 3 strips threw me off initially, but then I remembered my SSS Tiny Words Sentiments stamps.  I was also inspired by last week's colors at The Color Throwdown.  At this point, the card took shape in my head.
A background panel was created by-
Spritzing Dolphin Cove Shimmering Mist spray over my Scribble mask from A Colorful Life Design (on Neenah cs).
Using my MISTI, I over stamped the spritzed panel with a Technique Junkies Nautilus Mosaic background stamp with navy blue ink.  The panel was then cut down with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die from SugarPea Designs.
The Vintage Lighthouse was stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and then sponged some WPlus9 Gala Red ink onto it.  The lighthouse panel was place back in the MISTI and stamped again with Versafine Black ink.  Finally, the lighthouse was fussy cut out.
We would love it if when you are finished checking out all of the inspiration from the rest of the team, you would get your stamping supplies out and join us at FMS!
