Every one knows that in order to perfect a skill, you need to experience times of difficulty. That way you can discover how to solve problems and be able to creatively apply solutions in new situations. That is exactly what this sentiment is saying. I used this great Technique Junkie stamp from the stamp set By the Sea SS060 - www.techniquejunkies.com/by-the-sea-set-of-6/.
I paired it with the Technique Junkie Van Gogh's Sailboat - http://techniquejunkies.com/van-goghs-sailboat/. It is layered on dark brown card stock. I colored the focal image of the sail boats with Copic markers. The saying is stamped with an archival black ink.
The base card is a soft blue card with a dark brown layer. Technique Junkie Sea Waves - http://techniquejunkies.com/sea-waves/ - is stamped on another soft blue card stock as the top layer of the base card. A dark brown grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around it.
Have you ever sailed a sail boat? Have a great day and get inky!
