365 Cards and a so long for now...

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday with 365 Cards and D2D!! Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to make a card with a nautical theme and I thought this image (Quiet Sunset) from Faith at D2D was perfect. I colored it up on watercolor paper with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The DSP is SU! Bella Bleu and the hardware is also SU! The knot is supposed to be a heart...not sure I quite got it there but you can find the tutorial for it here. Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Challenge up your life - thank you
2. Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - thank you
3. Sketches by Carly - sketch
4. The Crafty Pad - something for the boys
5. Totally Stampalicious - Masculine
6. CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by again and I also wanted to let you know that this will be my last sample as a member of the D2D team. I love Faith's images and being on the DT has been great but as we all find sometime we need to take a break and recoup...that's where I find myself. I still plan to play along and hopefully will be back on the team some day so it's "so long for now..."

Cool card and that knot is awesome.


How fitting that you end your last D2D DT post with a nautical theme considering that you live in paradise. :(
But it's not good-bye, it's Aloha! Well, until the next time our cells light up! Have a good day - Love, SAM aka MOM
