Hi it's Twofer Card Challenge time and the theme for Challenge #19 is Nautical... so I've chosen to make a Bon Voyage and a young male Birthday card.... always fun the challenge yourself to make two different cards from the same image.
For my first card, I stamped the yacht scene and used Twinkling H2Os to watercolour it. Then I stamped the portal and embossed it with silver EP... and fussy cut it, to use as a frame. I used a ripples stencil to emboss the white background panel and finished off with a stamped sentiment and used a stitched die to form a label.
For my young boy birthday card I stamped the above image twice and fussy cut the yachts...then used Distress Inks to watercolour them. I did the same for my boy. Next I created a little stream scene at the bottom of my card panel... sponged blue DO through the ripple stencil for the water and painted on the bank and grass. To finish I stamped the sentiment and used a stitched die cut rectangle to frame the panel and then attached my images.
I am also playing along with AAA Birthday challenge #4 - For the Boys ... And The Male Room challenge #117 - Birthday card - and congrats as they are celebrating years ... And Happy Little Stampers Watercolour August challenge - Option: Ocean.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it, happy card making.
