I went surfing on Pinterest today to see what I could find to serve as inspiration for hubs' 40th birthday card.. I didn't find anything I wanted to CASE, but found lots of nautical, sailing, man-type cards that I did like. I pulled out my "Sail Away" stamp from SU & looked through my baggies from paper shares of the past, and found this beigy slightly distressed piece of DSP, and it was perfect. I inked the image in black (*gasp* I never use black ink!) and then cut out a mask so I could go to work on the water/sunset. The sunset isn't PERFECT, but I think it turned out ok. I'm no Zindorf, that's for sure ;) *bows to the wonderful Michelle Zindorf* I stamped the sentiment in the bottom in suede, and backed it on some suede holiday paper (hee!).. marina mist DSP & some oooooold vintage brads, et voila!
SOS 48 is water-related, so here's another.. water & a boat - fits the bill, so in it goes! Yay me!
