I had a lot of ideas for this one. I had pretty much settle on big flowers with patterned centers - but look what came out of my craft time!!
I seriously sat down to make flowers. I even had them picked out. Then I saw the banner stamps and that got me to thinking about Paper Smooches and I dug through my PS stash, paused on this set and realized how fun it would be with a sailing ship above and anchor below. I'm usually a brute force cardmaker - try this, try that, try again, photo it, photo again, etc.!! So when inspiration strikes, I go with it!!
I hope to see you playing along (maybe some of you will do big flowers!!
The patterned paper is from Echo Park's Splash 6x6 pad.

Kim, this is brilliant - it totally jumped out at me over at FMS especially when I recognized the Splash paper. :)ReplyDelete
This is such an amazing card Kim! I love the nautical theme and the fabulous colours! That paper is so fantastic! Love the embossing too! So fun!ReplyDelete
Ha! I loved reading about how your thoughts started with flowers and wound up with sailboats! I love how the patterned paper mimics the ocean movement and ties your boat and anchor together.ReplyDelete
This is a bit of a switch from flowers but oh what a fabulous use of the sketch! It just works!ReplyDelete
