My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 230

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Hi! Happy Saturday!
I am playing along with My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge today!

Fun, isn't it!?
I love their design team, they always make such fabulous cards, and they definitely motivate me to play! 
Here is what I came up with...

Inspirations are anywhere, and everywhere!
My twin boy was wearing this navy blue romper (I LOVE rompers on babies!) that has a bunch of anchors on it, and that inspired me to make a nautical card :-)

My husband is passionate about marine life, he actually wanted to be a marine biologist when he was young. And his favorite sea creature is octopi, I got the Sea Street set because of this cute little octopus:-)

I stamped him with Coastal Cabana then stamped again with versamark on top, then heat embossed with clear emboss powder. Then the fun part, fussy cutting him! I admit, it is not the best cutting job, but those tentacles got in my way and it was so hard! 
His tiny eyes kind of disappeared after heat embossing so I used the Owl Builder Punch and the 1/8" circle punch to make him a new pair ;-)

I absolutely loved that fish image on the DSP so I carefully positioned everything in the right place and left his face peeking out:-)  
I even used vellum for the banner, and picked Whisper White for the sentiment so it wouldn't disturb the design.  
I am going to stamp "Happy father's Day" on the inside and give to my lovely husband. I hope he will love it enough that he'll take it to his office to show off! ;-)
