Pete hinted that he thought the perfect birthday card for a boy should be a boat on the sea & he's always suggesting I should add more colour to my cards to make them more cheerful. MMM what's a girl going to do!
This gal' borrows Seaworthy from a friend & attempts to make a colourful card. I had originally thought I was going to use jumbo eyelets & the wide Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon which is why I chose Pumpkin Pie for the mainsail. So next step was to see what designer paper had Pumpkin Pie in it - Spring Break to the rescue.
I used watercolour paper & Stazon ink & coloured up the outline of the boat with markers & then used my aquapainter to blend/spread the colour. I was happy with the finished product as it was colourful & Pete loved it so that's the main thing. Would have preferred the sail to have been another colour, as you can see no ribbon was used in the end.
