Hi there! Today's card is my DT creation for Crafty Calendar Challenges where this month the challenge is to follow a sketch with the added option of the theme "around the world"
I must admit that I was quite stumped and lost for ideas until I came up with the idea of sailing and so I drew a little boat. It's now one of my digi images and is available from A Passion for Stamps.
I'm on a bit of a roll with experimenting with my punches at the moment so I used my Woodware swirl punch on some blue paper ,then used the negatives for waves. I've made a little tutorial on how I did this along with a few other ideas using the same punch which you can see HERE
The image has been coloured with Promarkers and the little life belt has been made using circle punches and string.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Georgia for running the challenge up until now with and for all her hard work and motivation. She is handing over the reins to Lisa and I wish them both all the very best!
I am entering this card into the Totally Papercrafts Challenge where the theme this week is BY THE SEA

I'd like to tell you about a great little craft shop I found on my travels....but I have to go in a hurry now so I'll tell you all about it in my next post! See you then..
