Row, Row, Row Your Dog
I couldn't help but sing "Row, row, row your boat" while I made this card. I then changed my tune to "Row, row, row your dog" as I sang (and laughed). I'm still not sure why my husband doesn't think it is funny. Is my sense of humor that warped?
Anyway, this card was actually inspired by the current Copic Creations Challenge,#33, which is to make a reflection. As you can see, I tried to do just that with the canoe and oar as I colored the water.
And as I was taking the image and using it to create a card, I used the current layout from this week's Sketch for You to Try, SFYTT082110.
Now, onto the typical deets. The adorable canoe image is from Eat Cake Graphics. I stamped it with Marvy dye black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored it with Copic markers. I did a little highlighting in the water with a white gel pen. Nestabilities dies were used to create some of the panels, along with patterned paper and color cardstock. Little dog paw embellishments and a dog bone clip were also used to create this card, and my "goofy" sentiment was computer-generated.
Guess this adds to my stash of "Who Would Ever Send A Card Like This?" stash. Not so practical, but I had fun with it.
Thanks for visiting.
