Surging Sea

My Father in law built his own sail boat over 35 years ago, I first saw it when dating my hubby, so when I saw this stamp I thought of him and finally got around to using it on a card for him, so this is on it's way for Father's Day, I couldn't figure out how to add a sentiment to I decided not to add one to the front.

Our Daily Bread designs - Surging Sea Stamp, colored with distress inks, the compass in the corner was stamped twice and popped up with foam adhesive
Memory Box - Big Splash Border die, cut from metallic paper
All night media -- map stamp, cut by hand on kraft paper and crumbled and added  walnut stain, tea dye and old paper distress inks
K&co. -- Blue Awning paper

We had a bit of rain a couple of days ago and our ditch out back flooded a little bit, check out the couple that decided to swim along, this is when they were headed back up the ditch.

Hope you are having a great start to your week,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,  I appreciate your comments,

Hi Connie, Your card is really warm and so creative. I love what you did with the ship, the distressed map, and the BG. That die cut kind of reminds me of waves too! That 'ditch' looks very close to a building. Those ducks are loving it! TFS
