Sailing Away

Hi there!  Today I've got a card to share that I had made for my FIL for Father's Day.  I was a bit late making it but it's the thought that counts right?  :-).  I have to point out that I was inspired to CASE a card that Karolyn Loncon made.  It was so nice I wanted to try something similar.  Here's my card...

First, I cut a circle out with my circle cutter and used it as a stencil, sponging on orange and yellow distress inks and Ruby Red SU! Ink.  Then I stamped my sailboat ink black. Now this sailboat stamp is actually not solid but mostly an outline. I wanted it to be like a silhouette but didn't have a boat silhouette stamp.  So after I stamped this I coloured it in with my black marker.  Then I made the water using my Spectrum Noir markers (BT1, BT2, BT4).  Then I stamped my sentiment (retired SU!) in black.  Another quick and simple one layer.  :-)

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend!
