Weekend Sketch Challenge #39 & LSC159

This is for Beate's Weekend Challenge. She is up to #39 -- WOW. When I first looked at this sketch, I was going to do another card with the Morning Soft stamp set. Then I thought you all might be sick of seeing that set. So I decided to go in the complete opposite direction and do a guy card.


Winds of Grace is my go-to set for guy cards, so here it is. I stamped the sentiment and the image in Timber Brown (staz on) ink. I used my blender pen to blend the ink on the sails and the boat. Then I water colored the sea with Brocade Blue. I sponged creamy caramel around the edges to soften the look.

The Limited Supplies challenge on SCS today was to create a card without using tools. I think that this one qualifies, do blender pens and paint brushes count as tools?

Stamps: Winds of Grace
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Confetti Cream, Recollections DP (retired)
Inks: Timber Brown, Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel
Extras: Paint brush, blender pen, sponge, dimensionals.
