A Ship Birthday Card

Spring must be coming…..I have snowdrops blooming in the garden! So nice to see.

It was a pretty quiet day here so I ended up with time to post another card. One of my sons-in-law is having a birthday next week so this is the card he is getting.

He loves history; old ships; castles and sword fighting so I decided this old ship would make a nice birthday card for him. I found this image on the Internet and I just coloured in some of the ship and water and left the rest black and white – lightly dusted on some blue ink with a stipple brush for the sky but it doesn’t show up well in the photo. For a change of pace I decided to place it behind a die cut oval (Spellbinders) on the front of the card. First I die cut the oval out of the lighter blue; then I die cut and embossed the smaller oval out of the dark blue and glued it behind the larger oval. The ship was then placed where I wanted it and taped at the back. The tags were hand cut and glued on top of each other and the sentiment was stamped in dark blue. Men do not like bows, ribbons and bling but it needed a little something else and those silver peel-off corner embellishments were perfect for this card.

That’s all for a Monday, February-22-16

Hi There Violet!

Such a nice 'guy' card. :) Love that you printed it off the internet and colored it. it turned out just lovely. We are expecting some much needed rain and possibly some flurries later this afternoon/evening. We need more than they are forcasting...its been a dry winter... but we'll take anything.. You would think i could finally live somewhere where i wasn't begging for rain! ... but i just seem destined to live in dry places...:( Hugs! deb
