SSS121

My card is for the Sweet Stop Sketch 121 found here. I used a SU! set called "Open Sea" for my card, stamping the background piece with Ranger vintage photo ink, and sponging with Soft Suede. The colors are Pacific Point and Soft Suede, with a piece of BG kraft dp. I added the spiral punched border using a SU punch and added some hemp tied into a sailor's knot. I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and embossed it wutg clear detail ep, and then sponged it and added more detailed color work with Copics. I used a white Sharpie to highlight some of the waves in the water. The sentiment was computer generated and this will be going into my next OWH box.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Monday!

Good job on those choppy waves. The spiral punch is one of my faves but I rarely think to use it. Good job on the sailor's knot, too. Beautiful card, Carol!
