Hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
Inspired by Elle’s challenge I was flicking through my stamps looking at the sets I haven’t used yet (either the entire set, or just elements within the set) and saw the My Guy set from Paper Smooches.
I originally purchased this set for the car and the golf cart images (LOVE these) but haven’t done much with the other items. Looking at the set again I noticed…the boat. SQUEAL!! How had I never noticed that cute little stamp before?? Immediately a bunch of ideas ran through my head and then it all went horribly wrong. haha I sketched out the dominant idea and I thought it looked so cute but when I tried to make it happen I just couldn’t get it to work. I slept on the idea and this morning I tried again. It’s not a bad recreation of what my brain had designed. lol It’s not as wonky as the photo would suggest either. lol
Here’s the card…
I sketched out the landscape with the lake on which the boats could sail with Bruynzeel pastel pencils and then put a wash of water over to soften the lines. Popped this panel up with foam mounting tape and added it to my card base. I ummed and ahhed over which sentiment to use then settled on “hello” as you could really use this card for a number of different occasions.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day!
