And besides using the sketch, the card needed to be masculine. I love doing sketch challenges so that part wasn't too difficult, but I seldom do cards with scenes. So that was the challenge for me. This is also one of the first cards I've colored using Odorless Mineral Spirits and I was very happy with the results. The boat is pop-dotted off the card.
Stamp set used: Sweet 'n Sassy Dino-Mite; Gina K Guiding Light
Colored with Koh-hi-nor Woodless Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits
Background Paper: Long rectangle is cut from a tissue box; black, white, and kraft cardstock; other patterned paper from Paper Studio
And this is the inside of the card. The verse says:
A father is neither an anchor to hold us back,
not a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.
I hope my FIL will like it! Thanks for dropping by. Happy Monday and have a wonderful rest of the week!
