Sailing


I've was stalking the postman yesterday because I was hoping for the dies I ordered would arrive one of which was a Penny Black one as you can see they didn't arrive, fingers crossed they arrive today.
I've been trying to think of a card for the Freshly Made sketch #190 for this week and this is what I ended up with.
I love this boat from Stampin Up, I think its retired now. I first stamped the image then using a nestabilities I made a mask to lay over the image and lightly blended. I may have lightly blended not enough because those sails were cut out of white and layered on top so why it doesn't show up I don't know.
Then I grabbed some cloud patterned paper that I hadn't put away yet from LOTV added a scallop edge. That was pretty much it did add the Birthday sentiment from the one that sits permanently on my desk which is straight its just the angle of the card and the fact I had to straighten it using photo editing.
Sorry its not a Penny Black card I will try my best for one for next week.
