Camo Sailboat

One of my nephews is having a birthday today. I love this Whipper Snapper Patched Sailboat. And when I saw this camouflage dp called Military (Kaisercraft), I thought the camo looked like water. So I set to work making my camo ocean scene. *grin*

I stamped the sailboat with Versamark onto watercolor paper and colored it with my Tombow markers and an aqua pen. I layered it so it would fit in the waves, which I just cut by hand. The tag is a Cuttlebug diecut that I watercolored with my Tombows too, and the ribbon is SU! Everything is ink distressed (including the moon) with Slate (Addirondack Dye Ink), and the Happy Birthday sentiment was created with my Times Roman Font (JustRite).

That about covers it.
Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!

I am stunned - if some told me they made a card with a sail boat, camo and green paper I would have said NO WAY... But this works - it really works!
