Hello Blogging Buddies

Today is the start of a new challenge on the DL.ART Challenge Blog ~


Here is my card:


Close to My Heart Wonderful Friend stamp set
Kraft card stock
Watercolor paper
Watercolor pencils
VersaFine Black ink
VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink
Anchor charm
Evergreen Bough distress ink
Tumbled Glass distress ink
Broken China distress ink
Picket Fence distress ink

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I used a cloud stencil and the Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Picket Fence distress ink to make clouds.  I used a wave stencil on the bottom of the card with Evergreen Bough distress ink to make waves.  I took a piece of watercolor paper and my VersaFine Black ink and stamped the Stampendous Sailboat stamp onto the paper, I colored the sailboat with watercolor pencils and then used the Stampendous Sailboats die cut to cut out the sailboat.  I took my VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink and the wave stamp and stamped that onto watercolor paper, colored it in with watercolor pencils and then cut it out with the coordinating die.  I glued the sailboat onto the card base and then glued the wave onto the card.  I took the DAD stamp from the Close To My Heart Wonderful Friend stamp set and the VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink and stamped DAD up in the left had corner.  I took some of my DL.ART Blue Bakers Twine and wrapped it around the card several times and then I took the Anchor charm and tied the charm to the bow.

Be sure to stop by the DL.ART Challenge blog to see all the great cards made by the Design Team!

Now it is your turn to create something for the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY CHALLENGE #205 BOYS OR MEN
