Masculine Monday: Love at Sea

It’s another new week and we’re heading off for a little family beach vacation before the holiday arrives!  Not to the ocean, but to a lake beach.  No jellyfish.  No sharks.  No crabs.  No sea salt.   I love the lack of such things with little ones under my watch!  Not that I don’t mind a stroll next to the impressive ocean from time to time!!!

Since we’ll soon be stepping out into the sand and the final round of the SCS Summer DT call involves a sea theme, boats and the like were on my brain over the weekend!

Stamps:  The Craft’s Meow (retired set), Paper Trey (Tiny Treats Valentine)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), SU (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight)
Accessories:  Smooch spray (Shimmer), red heart pearl, sponge, foam dots, cloud die (MFT)

The sun was sponged, using a small Nestabilities circle as a mask.  The little cloud was die cut and sprayed with a shimmery Smooch spray for a little touch of shine.  The ocean liner was stamped and fussy cut.  Both the cloud and boat were popped up with foam dots for dimension.  I added the little pearl heart to finish things off!  Another card in my stash for DH!  Valentine’s Day, perhaps?

Have a marvelous Monday!

    Okay, but lakes have water moccasins and snapping turtles and weird weeds that get tangled around your feet! LOL! I'll take my chances with the sharks and jellyfish… 😀

    Love that fun textured boat and the gorgeous sun you created!
