Hi, everyone! Check out these fun summery colors that Joan - our talented hostess with the mostess - has for us this week on the Color Throwdown challenge blog! I decided to also carry out the nautical theme of the photo and paper pieced the sails of the ship and colored the rest with Copics. I added a bit of fine glitter to the
waves for some extra pizzazz! I'm using the basic sketch for the current Retrosketches Challenge - tweaking it by adding the circle element. If you're needing a refresher course like I did with the sailor knot steps, the YouTube tutorial link by Barbara Anders is HERE. My finished card is 5 1/2" square. I used my corner chomper and added a die cut flag using Verve's Flag It Die Set and topped it off with a silver pearl. An easy, clean layered card design!
STAMPS: Learning to Sail (Verve)
PAPER: Miss Caroline "Dilly Dally" by MME, Real Red, White.
