Papertake Weekly ,,,, Dawny's Sketch :-)

Good Morning all :-) what CUTE cards there were in the Papertake Weekly Cutie patootie challenge ,,, !! thanks to everyone who joined us ;-)

this week dawny has made another fabulous simple sketch for us to follow :-)

we are sponsored by heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fabulous $25 spree to her store is on offer !! :-)

For my card I used this gorgeous Edwin with Binoculars stamp ,,, can't understand why it's called that as he has a telescope,,I also used the Sea background stamp too ,, these are availabe to pre order in the Simon Says Stamp store.

I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd Edwin and the porthole. I used Tim Holts brads for the 'nails' and also small brads for his shiny buttons :-) The papers are Magnolia from the Lazy Days Of Summer pack and Craft Creations. I used some American Tag hemp twine and an anchor charm that was a gift from America and Mary when I joined the HM&F Monday challenge :-) The sentiment is also from Magnolia. I added a few pearls and make a clove hitch knot around a toothpick as an extra embellie ( I was a cub scout leader so am a dab hand with knots !! :-)) I used a star dust stickles here and there and used Picket fence distress stickles on the sea spray :-)
