Fathers' Day Card

Good morning,
Today's card is for three challenges:-

Rosie D's - Something Blue + option Fish (I think there may be fish just out of sight under the water!)
Creative Inspirations - Monochrome
Polka Doodles - Fathers' Day/Male Theme

The image is made using Stampscapes nature sheet 12. I stamped the sea and used three different blue Brilliance inks to colour it, then I stamped the boat onto acetate using black Stazon ink and stuck it to the sea.

Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing.

Hi Clare
You're not the only one enjoying the weather and being a bad blogger, it's too nice to be indoors isn't it?
I love the seascape on this, the sea looks so real and the boat works brilliantly.
The flower card is gorgeous too.
Hope the glorious weather continues for us all.

This is a great male card Clare. I think none of us get enough practice making male cards. I think I make them when I have to!
