Setting Sail

This is another card I have made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which has just started this week...you can find it here...check it out, they have an amazing BLOG Candy for the opening challenge.

I have used a retired set that I was generously given by my SU and Friend Ann....the only payment she required was a card made with it...so here is it. Actually I have made two the same as it is my younger brother's birthday in July and he has a yacht, infact lives on it with his dog, Dennis, who is amazingly similar to Scooby Doo...they are a funny pair together - add living on a yacht into that equation and the stress and laughs never stop. When I flew across to NZ on a mercy dash when my beautiful Nana was passing away, my brother met me at the airport at midnight and as we got to his car he warned me about the beast within....I was nearly slobbered to 'death' by this HUGE dog! The next day we were rushing in to be at Nana's side David informed me we could be there in 7 minutes if we took the boat....my Mum informed me that he had to slam it into the rocks to stop it the day before....and the ocean was pretty rough - I politely declined the offer and heard my brother saying, rather indignantly, ' you wuss!!' Maybe so...but I wasn't taking the risk - I didn't have on waterprrof mascara!!! LOL!! Anyway, my brother will love this card!

I chalked the image and sponged around the edges, layering it onto embossed CS. The corners are torn embossed CS, I set eyelets and tied some twine/jute through them and lastly added an embossed sentiment....see how good I am, I even added some 'sea spray' around the sentiment....okay...that is from the embossing powder...I even used an embossing powder, I am not sure why it went like that....if you know..please PM me...but for the purpose of this card we will call it 'sea spray' as it is also for the Limited Supply Challenge which is all about seaside...so my 'artistic licence' is fully in play!! LOL!!

It is nice to see you here tonight - thanks for dropping in, please leave me a comment so I hear what you think!!


  1. Lovely job my dear. I haven't got a solution for your embossing, but sea spray is a good idea. I bet you couldn't do it again if you tried though..lol.

  2. WOW - Linda - this is amazing!!! Love the CB BG and this awesome image!!!
