I had good intentions, but I missed last weeks' Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch challenge. But that's okay, because I love this sketch, too! Go and over to Stamping 411 and see what the Operators came up with this week. The joy of this card is that it also fits the bill for one of the Creative Crew challenges for May -- Catalog Focus/Distressing. I went to an upline meeting on Saturday and it really got my creative juices flowing!
I took a few liberties with the sketch, but think that it still came out balanced. What you can't really see in this scan is that I cut out the sails and popped them up for some nice depth! A white gel pen adds highlights to the sails and the water.
