ColourQ 171

DSCF2065

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Arielle has a fun masculine palette to share today:

I did some paper piecing on a  cute little Alley Way stamp to mimic the stripes in the jacket:

To keep the stripe theme going, I embossed part of the Crumb Cake mat with my Stripes embossing folder.  The sentiment was computer generated, and the anchor is from the cute little Happy Whale Embosslit available in the Spring mini catalog!  I mounted my sailboat on an embossed star and a banner from some Authentique paper:
