Sailing Birthday

Paper Makeup Stamps - M4TW35 use felt
SCS Sketch Challenge - SC289

This week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge is to use felt on your card. I went digging through leftover supplies from the boys' school projects and found this dark blue glittery felt. Oooh, so what could I make with that? I decided to go through my paper next and chose this sheet from Basic Grey Lime Rickey that matched the felt pretty well. Once I had that picked, it made me think of water, so using the Sailing By set from Paper Makeup Stamps was a natural choice. Then I thought hey, if I cut the felt to look like waves it would fit this week's sketch challenge pretty well. And so, hey, I did just that! {grin}

I used versamark ink to emboss with my Night of Navy Classic ink pad and clear EP. I picked copics that matched my paper and colored the sail boat simply. I used dimensionals to pop up the boat panel over the felt. I love how fast this card came together - all starting with that piece of felt!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join us in this week's challenge to use felt on your card. Be sure to link it up here if you do!
