Ocean Breezes

i created this card for my dad for father’s day and for the impression obsession challenge theme of ocean breezes – beach theme or beachy colours; i didn’t exactly use those colours, but i imagined the view from the beach we used to have fun visiting.

impression obsession sailboats

i painted twinkling H2Os washes on watercolour paper, tore the edges of each strip, attached the layers and then cut with a circle die, which is popped with foam tape to another die cut circle trimmed with blue cardstock strips and twine.

i die cut the IO sailboats (DIE189-C) from red cardstock for the boat that i cut apart and attached to the watercolour paper die cut sails.

i’m also playing along with kathy racoosin’s 30 day color challenge at The Daily Marker; this is day two’s colouring.

thanks for popping by.
