Watercolor Dinghy

Hi again, it's my Dad's birthday in a couple of days. He loves fishing and goes on trips with a mate in their little boat.
This is my attempt at paper tole! I've cut and layered the boat and the rope to try and make them stand out more. I think I need to use thicker foam tape.
I coloured the image with Inktense pencils and blended with an aqua painter, so I'm going to enter
Virginia's View Challenge, a new challenge for me, where the theme is watercolor. 

I'm also linking up again to Addicted to Stamps where the theme is anything goes.

Materials used:
Stamp: Inky Antics Fishing Favourites
Inktense pencils; Divine Swirls embossing folder; Sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting :)

  1. A beautiful scene Cathy,

  2. So beautiful, I love the way you have 'framed' the watercolored piece!

  3. Fabulous card, I love your embossed 'waves'.
    Sometimes I use two layers of foam tape, if it's a bit thin.

  9. Your father is going to be so pleased with this, Cathy! You did an excellent job creating dimension and I'm happy to see you link it up to ATSM!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Another beautiful card, Cathy. Your dad will love this. The watercoloured dinghy is awesome. Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

  11. So lovely. I know what 'tole painting' is if you do it non-paper. Not sure if that is the same when you're doing on paper. But this is so pretty, and a very calming scene too. Love the way you've used the swirls EF to make a perfect frame for this scene. Your Dad will love this one. TFS & Hugs

  12. Fabulous watercoloring Cathy!! Your dad will love this! Great paper tole ... I enlarge your picture so I could see the details. Loll xx

  13. This is such a pretty scene! Love the 3D look of the boat bobbing in the water!

  14. You can totally tell the boat and the rope are popped out. I noticed it as soon as I saw your card. I assumed you were just that much of a whiz at coloring and shading to give it depth. It is a great card and I love the swirly background as it gives the feel of waves.


I love having you visit, and enjoy reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time! :)
