Just One Ship.

It was our Son in Law's Birthday last week
and this is the card I made for him.

I had previously made a card depicting 3 ships
which went as a swap which I  had really liked 
 so decided to try a card depicting just one ship. 
I think I have the balance about right by changing 
the birds in flight.  
Ship stamp is by 'Inkylicious Twincies'.
I created the background using inks pads and sponges 
to apply the colour. 
Birds in flight is a stamp by Stampscape.
I used liberal amounts of glamour dust on the sails
and water which did show more up IRL.
The frame is the negative from a previously used project.

  16. Hi Mrs A,
    what a fab scene card.
    I love the wonderful inking, and glitter on the sails looks like the sun is twinkling on them.
    Great slight waves of the sea also.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. I love 'scene' cards. You did a great job on this one. Your son-in-law should enjoy it! Thanks for sharing at Unicorn Challenges. Barbara DT

  18. The balance looks right to me, Mrs. A., but then I'm not sure if that counts for anything, beings how I'm unbalanced in my own mind! One thing I know for sure is I loves it and I'll bet your DSIL loves it, too! Super Hugs, Darnell
