Sailing...

Hi Everyone!!  Father's Day is fast approaching here in Australia, so today I've used this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge to create a nautical card for my Dad.  This would also be perfect for this month's CopicOz challenge to make a Masculine Card and use your Copic Markers!!! For your chance to win 12 Spica Pens, Click HERE!!!  Dad loves the ocean and used to sail a lot in his younger days, so I went with JustRite's By the Sea set for this card!  (Mum, make sure Dad isn't looking over your shoulder!!!!)  :)

I started with a base of Chocolate Chip and layered with White and some Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags DP.  Then I added the embossed blue layer and topped with a panel of more chocolate (punched on one side) and the reverse of the same DP.  I then used the Label 10 and Large Oval Nestabilities to create a frame that I then popped up on foam tape.  I stamped the sailboat from By the Sea in Memento Rich Cocoa on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (BG0000, BG11, BG13, G20, G21, B000, B21, B24, C1, C3, E31, E33, E35, 0).  It was cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I made a Sailors Knot with some twine and attached to the scallop layer.  (Dad is going to be so impressed that I now know how to tie this knot!!  LOL!!!)

Stamps - By the Sea (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Chocolate Chip, White, Blue Bazzill, Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags Compass DP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Copics, Label 10, Large Oval Nestabilities, Divine Swirl EF, EK Success Embossed Curved Punch, Twine, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
