I hope today finds you all well and happily enjoying the sunshine wherever you are!! I have been away on a mini vacation~LOL....helping some friends move, threw a fabulous Musical Theatre party for this years cast and crew and got a jump on some of the make and takes for our next Pampered Crafters Retreat. I think it might take me a while to catch up on my emails and what all my blogging pals have been up to!
This card is for my dear old Dad who loves to be out on the lake as much as possible. I love this image by Impression Obsession from Dina Kowal's line~ Sail Collage - H13022! The sentiment is called Smell The Sea C13006. There wasn't much to putting this card together.......
I stamped the image with Tsukineko Memento Nautical Blue on Neenah Classic Crest card stock. Stamped it again and cut out just the sails and the compass to pop up. The sails have a few pop dots stacked and piled up under there and the three corners were adhered directly to the first image to give the appearance of the wind pushing the sails. I added some shadows to the sails and clouds with Memento London Fog with the Chisel Tip Brushstix. I seriously love the Brushstix for coloring!! Using a sponge dauber some Memento Bahama Blue to the water, Memento Dandelion and Cantaloupe to the sun and Memento Summer Sky to the sky and the outside of the oval. The dang quickest card I have colored in a long time!
