Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Lighthouses”. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I decided to create a masculine card for this challenge. I added a die cut fishing net on the base card to create a textured background for the scene. I stamped the sailboat and sentiment on a black framed oval die cut and coloured the image with watercolour pencils. I layered the oval on the fishing net and a lighthouse die cut was added with mirror tape to give dimension to the card. I finished off with seagulls, a die cut anchor and sea shells. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

The lighthouse and sailboat

The embellishments

The sentiment

The inside of the card

    I have wanted that fishing net die for a long time. Your card shows it off so well and it is very masculine. You succeeded in making it a great card with all of the little details.
