Sitting By The Dock
Happy Wednesday!!! The week is half over already. Remember that song "Sitting By The Dock Of The Bay"? I had this going through my head the entire time I was making this card.
Today I'm sharing a card with an image from Digital Two For Tuesday that qualifies for Stamp Something's digital challenge. After printing it off, I pulled out my koh-i-noor pencils and blender marker to color it up. Wow! Did it turn out better than I thought it would. After pulling out my stash of Costco designer papers, I found an old world map to match the digital image. Once my image was colored, I lightly stippled Stampin Up! bashful blue dye ink around the edges and to fill in the background sky. I tried to keep the stippling as light as possible over the water so it would give the appearance of the fog rolling back out to sea. Hopefully I achieved that. Some Stampin Up! kraft thread, vintage looking brads and a navy button from Papertrey Ink finish the card off.
