Veels Geluk!

Hi there!

I am back with a second card on this Good Friday.

This time I used the inspiration from the Muse card club.

Therese Calvird is the muse this week, with a lovely nautical themed card. I also used a stencilled background for my red sail ship,  but  restricted it to a circle background, The same basic vertical layout was kept, with the focal point moved to the upper centre position.

I used drywall tape as my stencil and 'faded jeans' distress ink. Therefore I will also be linking up my card at Virginia's stencil challenge at Virginia's view challenge #2.



My sentiment says : "Congratulations!"  in Afrikaans.


The challenges:

                                                    


Thanks so much for visiting me today!

I love the feeling this nautical themed card evokes in me - fresh air, sunshine, summer days, and ocean breezes - utterly sweet!

This is gorgeous. I love the stencilled circle and the red sailing boat looks wonderful on top of it.

This is fantastic, Hannelie! Love that you've used drywall tape as your stencil! It came out so cool! The red boat is perfect, and wonderfully framed by the blue and the red panel. Blessed Easter, dear friend. Bev

what a clever use of the drywall tape! love your little red ship!

Oh my...another AMAZING card! So gloriously clean & graphic! "Swell" idea (as in ocean swells) to use the drywall tape for your stencil...that stuff is so cool! This wee sloop is guaranteed to sail into a winning spot in the card regattas!

This is so fantastic !! I like the way u enlarged the boat on ur card, looks like I am seeing the card through a magnifying glass ;)

Pragtig, vrou!!! Ek is natuurlik mal oor drywall tape, maar gebruik dit meestal net vir scrapbooking - jy het dit pragtig as stensil benut!!! Die rooi bootjie is pragtig en die rooi lyne wat so afloop is eenvoudig perfek!! Lieflike stukkie werk!!
Groete.
NS. Hoop julle het 'n baie geseende paasnaweek!!
