KWerner Challenge 43

Kristina's latest challenge was harder than normal as there were so many colours! I know never happy!


Not sure why but I thought I'd play with Ahoy Matey for it (red & blue was my light bulb moment for a sailor's top) & it didn't turn out how I thought it would but I think a wee boy would love one of these cards for their birthday or any day who that matter.

Stampin Up and Ahoy Matey
Stamp set: Ahoy Matey, Matey's Map (wheel), Cheesecloth BG (retired)
Ink: Basic Brown, Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip (for sponging)
Watercolour crayons: Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Old Olive
Paper: Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Watercolour paper
Other: Aquapainter, Cutter tool, dimensionals, sponge dauber, vintage brads

Thanks Kristina for pushing me outside my comfort zone yet again!

Great job with the colour challenge Karen! Must get around to mounting that stamp set myself, thanks for the reminder! Drive carefully this weekend if you're heading south, supposed to be a lot of rain so take it easy. We don't need another car accident in the team...
