Craft-a-scene DT Post

Well good afternoon to you! Its time for my second post of the day - the new challenge over at craftascene starts today and our theme this month is 'ships in the night'. You must include a ship/boat in your scene. My scene is made up from Sheena Douglass stamps and is more boats in the dusk than ships in the night - but I'm pleased with this one - what do you think?



I stamped the images then coloured with promarkers - I tried colouring with water colours but it really wasn't happening - so I went with what I know best and I think it worked out well. I've added some sparkly stars in the sky but the camera hasn't picked them up too well. The design was just then matted and layered - the card blank is an incredibly old one from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafters Companioncrafterscompanion: Masculine
Simon says stamp and showsimonsaysstampandshow: Travel
Cupcakecupcakecraftchallenges: All at sea
MAWTTmovingalongwiththetimes: Masculine
Delicious Doodlesdeliciousdoodleschallenge: One for the boys
Sweet stampinsweetstampinchallengeblog: Create a scene.

I do hope you've had a good sunday so far and are ready for a fabulous bank holiday monday tomorrow - woo hoo!!!! Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs
