Deconstructed Sketch #100

The Deconstructed Sketch Challenge is celebrating 2 years and their 100th sketch this week! Jen
and her DT have some sponsors with prizes to be given out, so I'm crossing my fingers and toes!  This is
one of my weekly "go to" challenges as Jen always has a great new layout on board! I wanted to play around with some wax pastels on watercolor paper to create the background.  I scribbled two shades of blue and three shades of yellows and orange then spritzed with some water.  I then stamped Sweet 'n Sassy's silhouette image from "The Sea" set using Versamark Onyx Black ink.  My worsted cotton ball of thread is nowhere to be found in my cramped little stamping room, so I had to settle for white yarn for the sailor's knot.  Until I get back to Wally World, this will have to suffice.  If you want directions for this knot, click on my Tips/Tutorials tab at the top and check out the tutorial by Bar Anders. 

PAPER: Pacific Point (SU), Family Ties 6x6 pad by Pebbles, Canson 90 lb watercolor paper.
