Father's Day Sailboat



Image is from Cowtown Stamps

I created this CAS card for my FIL. It was for Father's Day but I really think it could be given for just about any occasion! While making it I thought I used the perfect colors...blue for the sky, green for grass and brown for dirt. Then after I already gave it to him and was looking at this picture I thought to myself....DUH...you stamped a boat so there shouldn't be any grass or dirt!! LMAO!! Oh well....I'm sure nobody else thought a thing about it!

I didn't think of it until you mentioned about the colours Stacie. :-) Thought they were a nice masculine combo. Wonderful card

It's beautiful! No need to worry about the grass or anything. Think of it as a rainbow or a spectrum of colors while the boat is sailing. =)

I reeeeally like this masculine card! Are the colors painted on or swiped on with ink pads? I am going to have to CASE this idea from you! ;)
