I was inspired by a few challenges today, and for this project it was easy to combine three of them in one. Friday Mash Up this week challenged to use dry embossing with a sketch challenge; Crazy for Challenges had a male themed challenge; and Our Creative Corner's challenge this week was to use Real Red, Basic Gray and Basic Black.
I have made this card for my dad for Father's Day this weekend, the choice of stamp was so easy. Why? Because when I was just 2 years old my parents bought a yacht called "Spindrift" and it became my home for the next 5 years, even after that we used to go sailing for holidays, sometimes long holidays and I would have to do correspondence school. It was only a few years ago that my parents made the decision to sell her, and while she is no longer part of our life, the sea and ocean definitely is. The colour challenge this week just seemed perfect for a masculine card, and of course, the sketch gave me the inspiration I needed. I have sneakily added the dry embossing in the form of the crimped DSP.
Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Real Red, Neutrals DSP Stack
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray and Real Red
Technique: I used the scallop circle punch to make a template for the clouds in the sky and sponged them with a combination of Real Red and Basic Gray.
