Dad has always loved looking at boats and used to drag us off to walk around harbours when we were on holiday so I thought this image would be perfect for him.
The papers are a free download called 'Fathers and Fedoras' from Summertime Designs and I have used them a few times before because I love the set. I wanted it to be mainly blue but I'm really glad I used the touch of light brown from the argyle on the image too. I have been collecting Promarkers for a while now and have quite a few, so why is it that you could always do with a shade that you don't have yet?! In this case True Blue and French Navy- Oh well, it will have to wait because I have just ordered new stamps! I'm loving the sizzlets corner die with 4 different corners- I would have put this one down as too ornate and feminine for a man's card but in navy I think the swirls look quite wave like and fill the gap perfectly.
I am entering this for Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge as they have a theme of 'water'.
