Beached Boat


Hi Everyone,
Have you visited Nina's (There's Magic in the Air) blog yet? Each Monday she posts a free digi image and offers a challenge. This adorable 'Beached Boat' is last Monday's freebie and the challenge was to create a gate-fold card.
My finished card measures 5 x 5 (I started with a piece of blue card stock cut at 5 x 10). The patterned paper is Ring a Ding by Provo Craft. I used colored pencils and markers on the image. The sand was sponged on using brown and yellow ink. After I colored the image, I carefully trimmed around it (thank goodness for SU paper snips!) and attached it to sky patterned paper. I also trimmed around the cute little seagull and added him to the sky. The circles were cut with a Coluzzle template.

For the middle of the inside of the card, I used speckled beige paper and put a tan border (EK Success punch) along the bottom.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Lisa
