Yahoo, another week and another challenge! Isn't that banner just the cutest? So many possibilities for this color combo!
I really wanted to do a gingham theme, so I printed out some digital DP from My Favorite Things, searched my stamp stash and this is what I came up with:
I am sure that my DH the sailor would point out all the faults of this little boat! Oh well! I used the base of the sailboat from Nursery Necessities, and cut the sails freehand, using the basic shape of the stamp's sails. Before I adhered them to some cardstock for stability, I stitched around the edges with some floss. The "ocean" is two layers of Brocade Blue, CB'd with Swiss Dots. I found some retired SU star eyelets and added one to the flag on the mast. I probably could have added some more embellishments, but I didn't want to make it too busy!
We would love to have you play along with our challenge; you might even join the ranks of our Featured Stamper by having your creation chosen from all the submissions! Post your card on your blog or an online gallery like Splitcoast or Paper Planet, then link it back to the Color Throwdown Blog. Be sure to use the keyword CTD27 so we can find them easily!
