Smooth Sailing

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #440 is coming to a close soon. With my Internet down this afternoon, I was frantic that it would not be restored in time for the deadline. This challenge began last Monday, September 27, and ends this evening, October 3, 2021. 

I enjoy making masculine cards and there are plenty of men in my family who receive my cards for every occasion. Using some old paper and a bit of new, I cut the pieces according to the shapes on the sketch. I stamped the sailboat scene and colored it with Copic markers and adhered each circle with a layer of thin foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and also added using foam tape. The card front was adhered to a white card base and the inside was decorated with nautical images.

Be sure to check back on Monday, October 4, to view
AHSC #441.
