CDS Sneak Peek - Sails, Subs and Tugs

Kim Teasdale has it it out of the park or should I say water with this set called Sails, Subs and Tugs available August 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps. It is a great boy set but also great for any man in your life who enjoys being on the water. For my first card, I used the tug boat image. Now I know tugs should be white with black but I wanted to make it fun and of course I wanted it to match the DP I had chosen to use. I've stamped the tug on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored the image using my Tombow markers. Isn't it cute? Gotta love the Liquid applique I used for the puffs of smoke.

When I made the second card, all I could think of was the song about a yellow submarine. Darn - the song is still stuck in my head. I found the layout on the Sketch Saturday blog and went to it. I know the colors I chose aren't typical "water" but I wanted something vibrant. Hope you like it.
