Hi all! Today, I'm sharing a birthday card on the Crafter's Companion blog - be sure to check out the other inspiration for today. I started with Destination by Sheena Douglass. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers. I used warm gray on the sails - such a perfect sail color. I used BT for the water getting lighter the farther that I got from the land.
I thought this card would be perfect for my dad's birthday this summer. My dad loves sailboats and this stamp has a nice, masculine feel. I added a Flowing Happy Birthday stamp. I had a discussion during an online crafty chat about whether or not you could use pearls on a masculine card. We decided not for little boys, but that I might be able to get away with it for my dad's card. I had these lovely gray-blue pearls which seemed to complete the card.
