I wanted to make a Father's Day card for my FIL, Larry. I knew that I wanted to use The Open Sea and make some waves from cardstock. I saw a sketch on Dawn Olchefske's blog and decided to use it. Thanks, Dawn!
The cardbase is Whisper White attached to a piece of Marina Mist cardstock. The focal piece is Daffodil Delight. On the left, I stamped some images from The Open Sea. On the right, I sponged Peach Parfait and Cherry Cobbler to simulate a sunset. I used the faux suede technique to create the waves. I stamped the boat in Cherry Cobbler, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals. I cut a piece of Jolly Holiday DSP and wrapped baker's twine around it before adhering it to the card.
