Ahoy There!

This week's challenge over at the  Less is More blog involves a one layer card with a nautical theme entitled......... At Sea.


I love to be given the opportunity to make cards for children and I have used this Clearly Besotted pirate ship several times before. It is difficult of come up with different ways of using it so a one layer card was a perfect technique to get the brain working.



There was a lot of masking involved.   The ship took ages to cut out but using Zig Two Way Glue enabled it to be held in place securely and also easily lifted afterwards.
I brushed Stormy Skies Distress Ink for the sky with the cloud masked in the same way as the ship.   The waves ( Distress Inks Peacock Feathers), cloud and birds (Adirondack Slate) are from a Kanban set. I had to think carefully about masking to achieve the ship looking as if it was in the sea as apposed to on it.

What an amazing ship image; just perfect for a child's card. But for me, like Anne, the waves absolutely steal the show. They are fantastic.
Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More.

That is absolutely brilliant! The use of masking is superbly done and has created a really 3D feel to the card. The waves are gorgeous. Well done!
