Today is my Dad's birthday and I wanted to use a relaxed sea theme for his card. Dad loves the ocean and used to sail when he was younger so I thought this serene scene would be perfect. I also used this weeks Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the layout - it was perfect for what I wanted to do.
I started with a base of Baja Breeze and layered with Chocolate Chip, White and some Windsor Knot DSP. Next I took a piece of Chocolate Chip punched on one side with the EK Success Dotted Wave punch and layered with some Close to Cocoa DSP. Over the top I took three pieces of natural twine and knotted it in the centre. The image is from Beach Life by Flourishes. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with markers (Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue) and cut it into a square that would fit inside the deckle edged rectangle of Chocolate Chip. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Just a Note by JustRite in Chocolate Chip, cut it out with circle nestabilities and mounted it on a circle of Chocolate Chip and popped it up on Foam Tape.
