Ahoy!

Hi there!

Chrissy's  sketch at Case this sketch this week is awesome, don't you think!?

So many possibilities! After looking at it for a while, I saw... waves! and went the nautical route with blue, white and craft.


To create the waves, I sliced up a piece of card stock with my craft knife, and used it as a mask for my waves. Then sponged it with 'tumbled glass and faded jeans' distress inks.

I added a little sail boat and sentiment, cut with my Silhouette to complete the picture.


I just realized that the 3 waves on one third of my card makes it possible to enter the current
Cas-ual fridays  challenge l!

Having 3 colors in my design, I am linking up at Less is more as well!

I will also enter the simon says stamp 'anything goes' challenge.

Thanks again for looking! Hope you have a super Saturday!

The bit of white cotton thread wrapped around the mast....absolutely clever! Love the waves that you "simply cut with your craft knife"...they are perfect, especially sponged with such pretty colors! Another amazing card Hannelie!
