Enjoy the Adventure

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Enjoy the Adventure | by karen h @ carefree creations

Another almost-one-layer card (the boat is popped-up). I used a stencil to blend some blue distress inks. Then I used one of the spaces as my strip to stamp my sentiment.

It took me a few tries before I settled on the color scheme for the boat. For some reason I started with a brown bottom boat and that was ok, but felt off. I tried a grey bottom boat but that wasn’t good either. Finally I used the same blue that I used for the sentiment and that was much better!

Side note: I did some googling to see what order I should put my sentiment (because it is made up of 3 different ones). In my searching I found out that “anchors away” is wrong :( The correct spelling is “anchors aweigh”. I decided that the correct order of the sentiments would probably start with ahoy, but that didn’t line up well and as the “away” was wrong already, I just went with it. I do love this card, so it makes me a bit sad that it isn’t correct.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Karen I love this card! Your card was my inspiration this week, I saw that cute little boat and had to make a boat too. Hope you don’t mind I cased you.

  2. The stenciled waves are awesome! Using the navy for the bottom of the boat and the sentiment visually ties the elements together, so I think that was a good choice. Thanks for the great sketch!
